Lads, if you thought last Sunday was good... meet The Saturdays

LIFE as All-Ireland champions can be sweet -- especially when you get to rub shoulders with top girlband The Saturdays.

Members of the Dublin team met with the band at the celebrations of Arthur's Day in Dublin last night.

The boys in blue enjoyed a few pints of the black stuff in the Storehouse, where stars Cian O'Sullivan, Bernard Brogan, Alan Brogan, Michael Darragh MacAuley, Eamon Fennell, Mossy Quinn, Kevin McManamon and Paul Flynn spent the night watching performances by Paolo Nutini, The Saturdays and Stereophonics.

The Saturdays seemed just as pleased to meet with the Dublin stars, and Irish singer Una Healy, who recently announced her pregnancy, and her bandmates appeared to be only too happy to pose with the All-Ireland winners.

Meanwhile, Frankie Sandford, who is in a relationship with Manchester City star Wayne Bridge, was spotted happily chatting with Mossy Quinn, Barry Quinn and Michael Darragh MacAuley.

Members of the team have been celebrating their success since Sunday.

After captain Bryan Cullen told fans he would "see you in Coppers" during his speech in Croke Park, the party has continued for the boys in blue.

After the gala event on Sunday, the players have been spotted in Coppers on Monday and D-Two on Tuesday, where they enjoyed access to VIP areas.

Last night, the team relaxed among the crowds in the Guinness storehouse.

The players were spotted letting loose and enjoying the gigs with their partners.

After the Stereophonics ended the event on a high, the Dublin players had a meal at the newest Nando's branch on Mary Street.

Also spotted at the the Arthur's Day celebrations were celebrity chef Dylan McGrath, who went to the top-secret Snow Patrol gig in Dakota, and top models Georgia Salpa and Louise Johnston, who were seen in the nightclub The Kitchen.

Across town, Buck Whaleys hosted the official after-party for the music festival. Singer Maverick Sabre was spotted partying in the Leeson Street venue along with the band Wolfgang.
