Won't somebody please think of the children!?
OK maybe it hasn't that prolific. While Rob Eliot was the Irish player that shone the most in the Premier League today, with a man of the match performance that had people calling for him to play for England, in the lower leagues it was our attacking representation that were on fire.
The headline achievement comes from Daryl Murphy - a man who could well start against Bosnia next week - thanks to a hat-trick in the Championship against Rotherham. Murphy scored three in a 5-2 win for Mick McCarthy's side. Jonathan Douglas also got on the score sheet in that game.
Elsewhere in the Championship, David Meyler bagged an assist in Hull City's 3-0 win over Middlesbrough, while Stephen Gleeson must be wondering what the hell else he can do to force his way into the international reckoning, after getting a goal and an assist in Birmingham City's win over Fulham. Another 5-2 game.
Speaking of forgotten Irish players, Paddy Madden scored a brace in Scunthorpe United's 2-1 FA Cup win over Southend, while Conor Sammon got on the scoresheet for Sheffield United.
Lastly, in the Scottish Premier League, Adam Rooney scored his 9th goal of the league season in Aberdeen's 2-0 win over Dundee United.
Not a bad day at the office for the Irish lads with Jon Walters also getting under Diego Costa's skin as we speak.
