Wexford Club's Hugely Entertaining Tweets Make Light Of Crushing Defeat

Wexford Club's Hugely Entertaining Tweets Make Light Of Crushing Defeat
By Conall Cahill

Gusserane O'Rahillys played Rhode in the Leinster senior football championship quarterfinal today and were royally hammered, largely thanks to a brilliant performance from Offaly county star Niall McNamee. But it was their Twitter account that provided the most amusement throughout the match.

Those who weren't at the game were relying on the O'Rahillys Twitter account to provide us with updates, and by all accounts the tweets were as entertaining as anything seen on the pitch.

Eloquent in their description of on-field events, the O'Rahillys tweets allowed us to really put ourselves in their shoes, to feel the weight of every conceded score. Especially goals.

You could almost sense the exasperation. The man or woman using the account had no issues with using the account to express their own personal horror at what they were seeing.

As for who 'Sacker' is - well, the neutral was very much left to imagine. One has an image of a heftily built corner-forward with a fine right foot and a left foot that's "only good for shtandin' on".

Even at 20 points down, there was still hope. This penalty save from Michael would be the start of a great, 'Liverpool-Milan esque' comeback, perhaps. But there was just a hint of desperation in the tweet.

By half-time though, a certain doomed realisation was beginning to set in.

And eleven minutes into the second half, one got the sense that the tweeter had had enough.

A large cat apparently grabbed a couple of consolation scores for O'Rahillys as time ticked on.

Clearly the O'Rahillys Twitter operator is a man or woman of the people, not afraid to openly acknowledge great talent when they see it. Even when that talent is dismantling their own side.

But the best tweet was undoubtedly saved for just after the sixty minutes of play. Brilliant.

The scoreboard told its own story.

 

All that was left was to wish their opponents luck in the next round. Why can't we all be so harmonious? A true lesson in sportsmanship.

Can the GAA please put this person in charge of their own official Twitter feed?
