@steven_miller12 picks out the best local sports tweets of the week

Neil Dunworth @bensonfunworth

Someone give Condon a ship and a crew of able men and I’m confident he would take over the world

Neil Dunworth was one of Twitter’s most entertaining characters on Tuesday night as Limerick and Clare met in the Gaelic Grounds. If he keeps it up, he could well be an online answer to Michael O’Muircheartaigh. He was very impressed by Tom Condon

Sean D (scrawnban) @Scrawnban

Thrilling draw? Jaysus, I must not have been at the same game as ye lads

Which bit of the Limerick Clare match was thrilling? The bit where the ref moved the free forward cause of the abuse he got?

When the Limerick Leader suggested that the first Limerick-Clare match was “thrilling”, Sean D disagreed. He also got very sarcastic.

Paul Wallace @paulwally3

Ferris cited! Should be letter of apology sent to him instead. Shocking miscarriage of justice. May as well play Tag rugby.

Paul Wallace, a new addition to Twitter, wasn’t too impressed by Wayne Barnes’ decision to give a penalty against Stephen Ferris in last Sunday’s 6 Nations game against Wales. When he heard the Ulster man had been cited, he was almost lost for words. Almost

Simon McGuire @vteditor

I’d like to see a good game now between Scotland and England

We hope Simon McGuire had something else to watch on Saturday night when England and Scotland conspired to produce their annual bore-fest. Anything would have been better

Tom Hackett @tweatycity

How about getting the stadium announcer to get the crowd to show respect for the kickers from both teams. Very poor form.

Tom Hackett had a good point to make to the Aviva Stadium Twitter account when he heard the boos that greeted Leigh Halfpenny’s late kick on goal.

Kieran O’Brien @sportingLimk

We will be seeing a lot of Clare this year so this is this, if any, is most definitely the one to lose

Kieran O’Brien wasn’t too perturbed over losing to Clare in the Waterford Crystal Cup but he wouldn’t like to make it a habit


1700 at the Gaelic Grounds tonight. Great crowd for a Tuesday night, good match as well. Game on 25th of Feb will be tight one again

Last week Declan Long couldn’t wait for the local GAA season to kick off. With two Limerick hurling games in four days, he got value for money

Mark Foley @marc_o_foghlu

Jeez that game was truly awful

We’re not sure if former Limerick hurler Mark Foley was referring to the Limerick V Clare match but whatever he was looking at didn’t seem to entertain him a whole lot


Found ITV on sky’s extra channels :) no moving off the couch yet if rumours of David Beckham’s appearance on Johnathan Ross’ show are true!

After tweeting updates from Young Munster’s AIL win over Cork Con at a wet and windy Tom Clifford Park, Olivia O’Sullivan was looking forward to a night in front of the TV


I am not saying that the tackle laws are right but they are the laws ...

Dave Mulqueen was one person who didn’t have a huge amount of sympathy for Stephen Ferris
