With only a few short months to the Rugby World Cup, last night's victory is a statement of intent for what lies ahead. Needless to say, Twitter went berserk when full time was called.
Here's a few of the best tweets from the match.

Why aren’t we taught Fields of Athenry in school?
Times I’ve used Pythagoras? 0.
Times I’ve used Fields of Athenry? Every night out, family gathering, rugby match, occasion that involves alcohol.
Happy to hold a staff meeting on this.#IREvNZL 🇮🇪
