Following Dundalk's historic 3-0 win over BATE Borisov, they now edge one step closer to Champions League qualification, writes Gavin Spillane.
As expected, there was endless social media reaction to Dundalk's heroics in Tallaght, with the likes of Stephen O'Donnell and Chris Shields receiving high praise.
But Dundalk's wonderboy of old Richie Towell was also a recurring theme on Twitter.
Towell was somewhat of a cult hero at Oriel Park, scoring 43 goals in 96 appearances.
January saw the midfielder depart to Brighton, where his role was limited to just two appearances last season.
Dundalk fans were quick to point out what the midfielder missed out on as the Lilywhites inch closer to mixing it with the cream of European soccer.
Richie Towell might be kicking himself tonight...— Frankie Lally (@FrankieLally) August 2, 2016
Worth pointing out Dundalk also lost their star man - Richie Towell - in January. Just shows what can be achieved in Europe..— David Friel (@davidfriel81) August 2, 2016
Dundalk go through on a night of pissing rain, without Richie Towell. Ironic.— Kevin Coghlan (@kevin_coghlan) August 2, 2016
