After a bruising but honourable defeat to Argentina, Ireland exits the Rugby World Cup with their heads held high.
The 90-minute rollercoaster match saw Ireland come within three points of matching Argentina, however the Pumas held composure over the game.
To say that Twitter was a flurry of emotions is an understatement. Take a look.

This is because I didn't forward that chain mail I got in 2006, isn't it? #IREvARG

That and when you spilled salt and didn't throw some over your left shoulder.
Let's look on the plus side - you get your weekends back #IREvARG

MAYBE WE DIDN'T WANT THEM BACK.
I have to admire the persistence of political party press offices sending me e-mails right through the match. #IREvARG

We were going to post reactions to that Fine Gael tweet, but we've seen enough crushing defeats today.
ITV's coverage of #IREvARG is so biased I'm expecting them to lash out over the Falklands at any minute.

Is there anything to be said for another mass? #IREvARG

They had Fr. Hernandez on their side. It just wasn't meant to be.

Pennys! Got a whole lotta things for Christmas! Nope, still not cheering us up.
They should make a special GoggleBox episode of Irish daddy's watching this game .. It would be hilarious ðŸ˜‚ðŸ˜‚ #IREvARG

And it would be ninety minutes of bleeps and cups of tea hurled at the wall.
