That's funny - Dubs hero's giggle with Lily-Mae

DUBLIN football star Eamon Fennell made a surprise visit to a little girl who has a rare form of cancer in Crumlin hospital.

Lily-Mae Sunni Morrison (4) is undergoing chemotherapy after she was diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma.

The Dublin midfielder is hoping the visit will help raise awareness of the condition, which affects just just one in 100,000 children.

"It really hit home to me when we won the All-Ireland and brought in the cup to this hospital the next day. It was a special thing to be able to see what it brought to the kids," Eamon said.

Neuroblastoma is a tumour that develops from nerve tissue, usually occurring in infants and children under five.
