Twitter Was Outraged After Dramatic Women's FAI Cup Final Was Rudely Interrupted

It's FAI Cup Final day in the Aviva Stadium, with Wexford Youths and Shelbourne Ladies who faced off in the Ladies final before Cork City and Dundalk final in the men's. It was a classic between Wexford Youths and Shelbourne in the first game, with Wexford Youths' Ciara Rossiter scoring a goal in the final minute of added time to force extra time.

Things got even more amazing in extra time, when after Wexford Youths went ahead - Shelbourne managed to claw there way back in the final minute of extra time in a hugely dramatic finish. Dearbhla Beirne got Shels the goal that earned the Dublin side a chance in the penalties.

Incredibly, a dramatic game was overshadowed during the penalties when the men's teams came out of the dressing rooms to warm up for their game. People did not know how to react, and wanted the men to show more respect to the ladies shootout.

Wexford finally got over the line, winning the shootout to lift the cup.
