The Best of Twitter following Mayo’s win over the weekend

Fiona Frawley

My die-hard Dub Da will scalp me if he ever reads this, but I was pretty happy with the result of the match on Saturday.

He and the rest of my family would say it’s because I don’t actually know the first thing about GAA and have no idea  what this means, and they’re probably right. But from an outsiders perspective, that streak had to end. Needless to say I’m not the only one who thinks so, pretty much every corner of Ireland erupted into a rousing rendition of The Green and Red of Mayo when the whistle blew on Saturday evening. While I can’t give you an informed commentary of the match itself and how everything went down, I can show you the best and funniest twitter reactions to the result. That’s just as good, right?

These are the kind of tweets I read so I can pretend I have a clue what’s going on.

Ara, you love to see it.

We’re here for the cute factor.

An injustice, truly.

We love a bit of a lip sync to mark the occasion.

This guy is clearly very committed to parent duties.

To be fair, if Matthew was still in there they’d have to get the word in somehow.
