The Rose of Tralee 2016 is over and this year's event had everything from gangsta rap to hoop dancing.

The Chicago Rose, Maggie Rose McEldowney, walked away with the title, but this year's event was much more about the journey than the final destination.

There were stage invaders, gangster rap, calls for a repeal the eight referendum and one lady even found time to kick Daithí in the ribs.

Here are some of the best tweets from tonight's televised show
