Dublin players Paul Flynn and Kevin McManamon have made the All-Ireland celebrations a family affair.

The GAA stars were pictured with their proud fathers as Paul uploaded a photo to social media with dad Peter alongside Kevin's dad Martin. Peter is also a keen fitness fan and this summer the 72-year-old completed the 10km Fingal race.

Celebration

The right-half-forward (30) and the left-corner-forward (29) helped bring Sam Maguire home to Dublin for a second year in a row with thousands of fans taking to the streets of the capital in celebration last Saturday.

The Boys in Blue will soon be kicking off the Sam Maguire tour with stops in some of Dublin's best-known GAA clubs.

Midfielder Brian Fenton (23) was also snapped celebrating the famous win with legendary footballer Jimmy Keaveney. Widely regarded as one of Dublin's greatest players, the 71-year-old met Brian in Beaumont Hospital with Sam Maguire on Tuesday.

The team enjoyed a post-match party in the Gibson Hotel on Saturday night with the likes of minister Leo Varadkar and RTE's Marty Morrissey joining the players.

The celebrations continued into the early hours of the morning as the team celebrated with family and friends.
