The Munster squad took time out of this week's training schedule to visit the ARK Paediatric Department of Limerick Regional Hospital where they met and spent time with children and infants in the Rainbow and Sunshine Wards.

The squad were joined by Munster Rugby mascot Oscar, who stole the show for the younger patients, when preferring the furry mascot over players to join them in photos.

The afternoon of autographs and photographs was exactly what the doctor ordered as patients, families and staff enjoyed the surprise visit and brief distraction from the more serious health matters.

The players spent the afternoon in the hospital on Tuesday following a training session at University of Limerick.
