The Dublin ladies have confirmed that they have begun fundraising for their team holiday.

After losing the past three All-Ireland deciders, Mick Bohan's side were comfortable victors over Mayo last week in front of a record attendance for a ladies final.

While the participants in the men's final get a team holiday, thanks largely to a grant received from the GAA, the Dublin ladies have to stump up the cash themselves.

"We're hoping to go away - we're starting with a bit of fundraising now. I suppose it doesn't come with the package like it does with the guys," Fiona Hudson told the Ray D'Arcy Show on RTE.

Her team mate Niamh McEvoy, who scored a vital first-half goal in the final win over Mayo added: "We have never been on a team holiday as a group so we're going to look into doing a bit of fundraising and hopefully we'll get some support."
