Social Media Reacts As Ireland Defeat The Mighty All Blacks In Dublin

World beaters.

Don’t worry. Ireland have done it. It wasn’t a dream. Last night in front of a full house at the Aviva Stadium they laid down the ultimate mark – they defeated the mighty All Blacks, and they did it in some style.

The scoreline may have only read 16-9 in the end, but Joe Schmidt’s men put in the ultimate performance, and throughout the game, it was clear only one team was going to win.

Ireland can finally call themselves Rugby World Cup contenders. In the last 12 months they’ve defeated all the heavy hitters, and they’ve done it with an incredible sense of professionalism.

Here’s how social media reacted to one of the great sporting days in Irish history.
