TWEETS: Irish players celebrate their famous International Rules victory over Australia

Joe Kernan's  side were forced to initiate defensive mode in the second half to keep their noses ahead until the final whistle after leading by 20 points at half-time.

After losing their grip of the Cormac McAnallen grip last year, Ireland showed their willingness to make amends with an impressive opening half display which included a goal in the fourth minute. Further six pointers from the boot of Aidan O'Shea and Conor McManus put considerable distance between the sides by the stroke of half-time.

By the third quarter however, Ireland were a subdued side while Australia managed to pave a way back into the contest. They outscored the hosts 29-13 in the second half but despite the enforced first-half departure of Donegal's Paddy McBrearty through injury, Ireland's foundation proved solid enough to withstand the onslaught.

Bernard Brogan's behind just moments from time sealed the four point win and the celebrations rightly commenced.
