The Twitter reaction as Laois reach first Leinster final in 11 years

Twitter was in fine form

For the first time since 2007, Laois are back in a Leinster final.

Something which seemed so remote when John Sugrue and his management team took the reigns at the start of the year.

Laois began the season in Division 4 but have now won ten successive competitive games.

Before today, that included two wins over neighbours Carlow, and they made that three in a row over that opposition this afternoon.

It really was a massive day for football in Laois.

They have made such strides this year and were coming up against a team in Carlow who were riding on the crest of a wave.

Their #CarlowRising slogan was everywhere and their ‘Scallionaters’ song even range around Croke Park before throw in.

But Laois prevailed and some of the Tweets sent out afterwards are absolute gold.

We’ve compiled the best of them below:
