Mental, carnage, nuts, crazy - British twitteratti lap up GAA double-bill on Sky Sports

Wexford against Waterford was probably the best game to have featured on Sky Sports so far

Sky Sports showed their first ever double-bill of GAA action across the water today and the reaction from our near-neighbours was priceless.

The clash between Wexford and Waterford at Nowlan Park was arguably the best game of hurling and it had British twitter users salivating. Liam Dunne's side won on a scoreline of 3-15 to 2-15.

In the 5pm throw-in, Paul Grimley's Armagh had too much physicality for Roscommon at Dr Hyde Parke and ran out winners by 1-17 to 1-12.

The action was gripping and the suspense was not lost on Sky Sports viewers on the other side of the Irish Sea... even if they weren't quite sure of what exactly was transpiring.

Here are the pick of the tweets:
