Well, that was an absolute joy.
'When Michael Met Davy,' the documentary about how 11-year old Michael O'Brien's was invited by Davy Fitzgerald to give an inspirational speech to the Wexford hurlers, has captivated the nation.
We laughed, we cried, and we enjoyed every second of it.
Michael's speech would come up trumps in the end, inspiring Wexford as they overcame early obstacles to steal the win against Tipperary.
Right from the off, viewers were prepared for tears.

What an inspirational young fella Michael O'Brien is, a powerful personality, 11 years old but years wiser - he's a son, brother, friend you could only be proud of #whenmichaelmetdavy

There was plenty of compliments for his school, St. Oliver's, as well.
#WhenMichaelMetDavy what a cracking young fella Michael is! A passionate, articulate and capable child bursting with ambition. His visual impairment seems well supported in his school too. #GAA #seetheability

What a happy school that appears to be - and how great are the teachers? As for Michael, well, he's a superstar. #WhenMichaelMetDavy

More than anything, we were just impressed by Michael's incredible knowledge of sport. He puts us all to shame.
#WhenMichaelMetDavy is some programme. To have that level of knowledge and passion for the game and know the ins and outs of games 40 years ago is incredible. What the principal said about being able to feel games as opposed to purely see them is so true.

The big days aren't finished for him yet. Croke Park have announced that he will be a special guest for this year's All-Ireland final. You know what, he deserves it.
'Dream Big' is Michael's motto and we couldn't agree more. We can't wait to welcome Michael to #CrokePark on All-Ireland Final day for the game and a VIP tour of the GAA Museum and Stadium. What a true inspiration he is to everyone! #WhenMichaelMetDavy pic.twitter.com/EM5vbfd3aN
