Marguerite Furlong Harpur ♥️ 💯 👏 absolutely brilliant
George Larkin All heroes. But Sexton, O Mahoney, Kearney were awesome today.
I love Peter O'Mahony more than 99.9% of my family ❤ #IREvNZL— Sarah (@SarahMc2811) November 17, 2018
Janine Taylor Now THAT was a game of rugby!!!
Damian Scott Best team in the world. Hands down. Never gave NZ an inch.
Significantly less celebrations from the team this time.Not a surprise anymore

Imelda Reidy From 1-23 we were outstanding. No argument about the best team out there by a country mile. COYBIG 💚💚
Tim Cronin Well played guys, thoroughly deserved. ABs never looked like breaching the defence.
Andy Farrell take a bow, never seen NZ with zero tries. Schmidt a genius-everyone a hero. Never been happier to be wrong!!!!😃😃😃— luke fitzgerald (@lukefitz11) November 17, 2018
Moira Cunningham Hearts are exploding with pride for them
Wayne O'Brien Most seriously impressive- a hard fought contest from kick off. Always intense = mentally demanding. Excellent defence and great discipline
Good calm refereeing there. Barnes really relaxed amidst an incredible atmosphere in Dublin.— Murray Kinsella (@Murray_Kinsella) November 17, 2018
Richard Mifsud Veni Vide Vici That was an unbelievably professional performance. We belong 👊🏻🏉☘️
Ginette Mifsud So immensely proud of the boys. Unbelievable effort from all of them 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️
In fucking tears! I can’t believe the shift the lads put in!

Gav Heg POM is not human. Bundee, handsome Rob, stander, fish fryer, marmion, furlong any of them worthy man of the match. The game has me knackered. First half should have had an all black in the bin but we did it. My god we did it!
Peggy Sibbald an amazing game of rugby best I have seen 🍾🍾🍾🍾❤️❤️
Dublin will be hopping tonight!! Gerrrrrrup!!! #IREvNZ— Pups (@GlendaPups) November 17, 2018
Dee Beare Literally the best overall 80 minutes I have ever seen any Irish team play. Any one of O’Mahoney, Stander, Toner, Kearney or Van Der Flier could have been MOTM. It was the culmination of everything Schmidt has brought to Irish rugby.
Derek McGee Gary Ringrose said it best mid-game... "F*@kin Hell!" 😁
4th time NZ tryless in a Test since 2012 - AUS 2012, AUS 2014, Lions 2017, today.— Russ Petty (@rpetty80) November 17, 2018
Paula Downes There are not enough superlative s to describe the performance.
Dónal Foley WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Knock on.Whistle.Everybody in Ireland goes "yes!", then almost collapses because they hadn't taken a breath in five minutes.

Amber Jane Harrop What a performance so many bodies put on the line - anyone doubting we could do it, we can.
Gerald Williamson A fantastic team effort. The defense was immense and the penalty count against the AB's was proof of the pressure that Ireland kept on the AB's. Ireland can now feel justified as being serious contenders for RWC 2019 on tonights evidence.
Hahahaha 80mins and not a single try to show for it #IREvNZL unreal, the absolute best in the world right now undisputed— Emma McGarry (@EmmaKMcGarry) November 17, 2018
Cian Ó Muilleoir Many hours later and I'm still lost for words. I can just about muster one: immense.
Olwen Barrett OMG what a win!! Every single one of the 23 played their heart out, gave it their all, could not have asked for anything more from them!! And the 24th man?? Supporters......well done, the stadium was rocking!!
So proud, so happy, so thrilled......Ireland you rocked!! 💚🇮🇪☘
To everyone who asks "How do you respond to the haka?" I say : play like that for 80m. Thoroughly deserved win. POM out of this world and his team mates brought it home for him. The analysis can wait...mine's a pint! #IREvNZL— Harpin' On Rugby 🏉 (@HarpinOnRugby) November 17, 2018
