Now we don't want to poke fun at the British, remember most of us still know nothing about cricket, but these tweets are worthy of sharing.
To be fair, it looks like it's not just the Irish in the UK watching the hurling on Sky.
An honourable mention has to go out to the woman who was proud of her cousin for playing "professional hurling", unfortunately she deleted her tweet a lot quicker than some of these people.
