Yesterday, John Muldoon, Mils Muliaina and 23 other players visited the children’s ward of the Galway Hospital to meet with the young patients there. Meanwhile, Sligo man Sean Henry and 20 of his team mates were in the Ability West centre in Tuam.

Ability West is dedicated to helping children and adults with intellectual disability.

“Instead, we said we’d go out and visit Ability West and we’d go to the Children’s Hospital in Galway, just hand out a few selection boxes and a few things here and there. It was something different and it’s great to get some young fans on board.”
