Blackrock fell short in the rugby but Cuala produced a masterclass to ensure the All Ireland senior club hurling title is on its way to South Dublin.

The Dalkey men saw off the challenge of Clare's Ballyea - 2-19 to 1-10 - as they became the first Dublin team to ever lift the trophy.

Dalkey is not exactly a hurling hotspot and with the county team in transition at the moment, it makes their victory all the more incredible.

We are still waiting for their most famous fan - Dancing Dessie Cahill - to have his say, but in the meantime, here is some of the best Twitter reaction.
