A nation sobs – how Twitter reacted to Ireland’s heart-breaking All Blacks’ defeat

Sums it up:

Even Joey Barton feels sorry for Ireland:

A disappointingly factual Dara O’Briain fails to provide a gag to ease a nation’s pain:

Una Foden – we had the same reaction the last time we had to listen to a Saturdays’ song:

Let’s all blame Kevin Kilbane:

Barry McGuigan is well used to pain, but this one still hurts:

People say that all Piers Morgan does is talk shite about football. That’s really unfair. He can also talk shite about rugby too:

Wales winger, George North sympathises:

The legend that is Paul McGrath takes time to show his enduring class:

Clare Balding is as even-handed as ever:

The Saw Doctors try to provide some relief:

Former England captain and something to do with Princess Diana, Will Carling is in a similar mood:

Dai Lama doesn’t disappoint:

Colm Tobin – the less famous, but no less amusing one:
