Joe Schmidt's men defied the long odds to defeat the All Blacks in Chicago this evening.
The men in green did it the hard way, with the Kiwi's getting back to within four points in the second half.
However, a late Robbie Henshaw try ensured the Irish would walk away with their first ever win over New Zealand.
Here is how Twitter reacted.
