Despite valiant efforts by Ireland, England triumphed in their Six Nations match with a 24-12 victory.
Of course, the appearance of Bono at the match drew plenty of 'Sunday Bloody Sunday' jokes, not to mention Bono's general presence being a reason for Ireland's performance. On top of that, Owen Farrell's leg-grabbing incident also got people's attentions as did the referreing too.
Still and all, it's not the end of things by any stretch. Here's the ten funniest tweets of the match.
Ireland might as well bring their new pal Bono on for second half.
Sunday Bloody Sunday is right. #ENGvIRE

Unfortunately for Ireland, England are playing like they did at the World Cup.
Even more unfortunately for Ireland, so are Ireland.#ENGvIRE

The Indo will find a way to blame Sinn Féin for this.#ENGvIRE

Told you Bono’s three-hour lecture on their difficult Zooropa sessions would backfire. #ENGvIRE

I'm kind of alright with the nation finding another thing to call Bono a pox for.
A great national unifier in tumultuous times.

Looking forward to Leo Varadkar’s tweet about how this is all Sinn Féin’s fault #ENGvIRE
