Being ill in hospital isn't easy on any child, but those in Temple Street were given a boost this week, thanks to some special visitors.


Members of the Leinster Senior Rugby squad took time out to visit their little fans in Temple Street, much to the delight of some of the patients.  


Some of the team from the double-winning squad took some time out to visit fans following their historic wins in the Champions Cup and PRO14.

Cian Healy, Robbie Henshaw, Rhys Ruddock and their fellow teammates brought in their medals - and posed for a few selfies - to the delight of not just their little patients, but parents and staff too.


The players showed off their PRO14 medals after winning the title last Saturday. It followed their 15-12 victory in the Champions Cup final in Bilbao earlier this month, where they triumphed against French Top 14 outfit Racing 92.
