Joel Slattery picks out some of the best tweets after the Limerick minor hurlers won the Munster final on Tuesday evening.

Home after another great night for Limerick in Thurles. These minor players know how to win and entertain. Super hurlers with top attitude. - @Eibher1 Éibher O’Dea.

The Kilteely-Dromkeen man is one of many Limerick fans who could get used to seeing the county teams winning in the Home of Hurling

HISTORY IS MADE! Limerick are back-to-back Munster minor hurling champions for the first time ever!! - @LimGAATracker Limerick GAA Tracker.

The Tracker was giving score by score updates but this one at the end was by far the best for all the Limerick supporters

Excellent win for the minors. All-Ireland Semi to look forward to now. I feel for Waterford being forced out on Sunday at 12 midday though - @henrymartin1 Henry Martin

Henry is looking ahead to Croke Park but feels Waterford got the short straw as they must open up Sunday’s triple header in Thurles

Fantastic evening in Thurles, well done to all, and management, great success #luimneachabu - @tellytobin. Seanie Tobin.

Senior player Tobin was a proud supporter for Tuesday’s game as he watched the stars of the future retain their title

Great win for the minors tonight. Defending your title in any sport at any level is an unbelievable achievement . Plenty left in them as well - @reidymeister. David Reidy.

Senior panelist Reidy was also proud of the lads’ achievement but is looking at bigger and better this for this group of players

Nobody said it was easy #2inarow #historyismade #LuimneachAbú - @jamieporter2. Jamie Porter

Porter quotes Coldplay to express his joy at retaining the minor title

Great win for the Limerick minor hurlers 2 in a row. A great achievement. All-Ireland is in ye #luimneachabu - @damienquiad Damien Quaid.

Quaid is another man who feels this side could be in action in Croke Park come September

Tell the #hawkeye boys to switch the settings over to the #smallball #limerickminorsarecomingback #gaa #believe - @geraldineneenan. Geraldine Neenan.

The Athlacca woman doesn’t want a repeat of last year’s fiasco. With Cork playing in the Senior game that day I’m sure Croke Park will ensure Hawkeye is on its best behaviour

Great win for Limerick minors. Back to back titles. The start of a good hurling week - @EmmetAdareRath. Cllr Emmet O’Brien.

Cllr O’Brien is hoping for more success this Sunday after the minors got the sporting week off to a perfect start.

Congrats Limerick minors, gonna take some beating from here on in! #Boost – DecHannon Declan Hannon.

Adare’s Declan Hannon is also predicting big things for the minors for the rest of season.

Hope Hawkeye is working properly in #crokepark for the remaining @LimerickCLG games.. @shane_florish Shane Florish.

Referee Shane is another one hoping that the score detection system does its job this year

@LimerickCLG great win tonight congrats to all involved. Unfinished business in Croke Park @limerickreferee Richard Moloney

The Bruff man is looking forward to seeing Limerick do something that even Garth Brooks won’t do this Summer – play in Croke Park
