'These Irish don't mess around' - The American Twitter reaction to the Fenway Classic is golden
It didn't take long for Dublin and Galway to get to grips with each other in the Fenway Classic - an exhibition match in the home of the Boston Red Sox with hybrid rules.
Players from both teams were involved in a mass brawl much to the delight, it seemed, to some of the Americans in the crowd. Judging by social media, the Boston locals are really enjoying their day out with plenty of Guinness being consumed.

So there is football on and I'm somehow HOOKED on Hurling at Fenway. Little bit of rugby, tad of lacrosse and a flat out hockey line brawl.— Matt McLaughlin (@mcubed17) November 22, 2015
