WHAT. A. GAME!
Laois hurlers have sent Dublin crashing out of this year’s All Ireland championship thanks to a thrilling win in O’Moore Park.
In a heroic performance, Laois led from start to finish and defied their massive outsiders tag.
In what may be deemed as the biggest upset to hurling this year, Twitter at home and abroad went wild as the final result came in.
Laois were outstanding – as they recorded arguably the county’s biggest hurling win since beating Wexford in the Leinster hurling semi-final in 1985.
Here are some of our picks for the best reaction:
What a day for Laois!
What a day for Hurling!
Laois knock Dublin out of the All-Ireland SHC with a well deserved famous win in O’Moore Park!

This was not a fluke either. Laois only lost by 2 points to Dublin away in the league. And remember Carlow drew with Galway in the league. Only lost by 6 points in the championship. There is potential in the smaller counties #Laois

Laois advance to the quarterfinals on the back of our first championship win over Dublin since 2005.
Superb performance by ever single one of the players. Simply amazing win.
