It was an All-Ireland semi-final weekend for the ages.
Galway, Clare, Cork and Limerick gifted the nation to the sort of hurling display that leaves everyone exhilarated and exhausted.
Needless to say, everyone was talking about the hurling on social media over the weekend - it even converted Kerry footballer Tomás Ó'Sé.
Here are some of the best reactions to the weekend's semi-finals.
In fairness you can’t really compete with hurling!!!! #galwayclare— Tomás Ó Sé (@tomas5ky) July 28, 2018
Maybe it's hurling, not PE, that should be compulsory in schools...— Kieran Cunningham (@KCsixtyseven) July 29, 2018
If you have non Irish friends or relatives, make a plan. Do them a favour and witness their wonder by bringing them to a Hurling game at Croke Park! I think of bucket list events; Boca Juniors v River Plate, Masters, Superbowl, and this is our version, albeit a different sport. pic.twitter.com/iqqMH5RWVE— John Duggan (@JohnDugganSport) July 29, 2018

Hurling is ridiculously good. Breathless brilliance.— Tom English (@BBCTomEnglish) July 29, 2018
We don’t normally comment when we’re not involved................ but truly, & without any shadow of doubt, the game of Hurling is gifted to our nation by the gods 🙏🏻 pic.twitter.com/6WeT77hzsv— Carlow GAA (@Carlow_GAA) July 29, 2018
The best part is we do it all again next Saturday when Galway and Clare take to Semple Stadium next Sunday for the replay.
To whet the appetite for the clash, here is that Peter Duggan point again. We've been watching it on repeat.
"A truly astonishing score" - Peter Duggan hits a spectacular point as Clare try their best to stay in the game.
Watch highlights on The Sunday Game at 9:30pm on RTE 2 tomorrow. pic.twitter.com/yjLgwIbeZ2— The Sunday Game (@TheSundayGame) July 28, 2018
