LauraLynn is Ireland's First Children's Hospice, which opened in September 2011 thanks to the kindness and generosity of their wonderful supporters.

AIG and the All Blacks sent special scarves and some teddy bears for the children, part of over 1,400 young ones with with life limiting conditions throughout Ireland.

Aside from the care they provide, there is a limited pediatric palliative care programme available, already providing support for 104 families.

Forwards Luke Whitelock, Luke Romano, Dane Coles and Ben Franks spent a few hours with the children and their families ahead of the All Blacks final Test of the Air New Zealand European Tour, played at Aviva Stadium this weekend.
