Twitter reacts to fantastic "All-Ireland Day" documentary
It's been a short seven weeks since Dublin lifted Sam Maguire for the 25th time after an intense final against fierce rivals Kerry.
Just when all the Philly McMahon this and Kieran Donaghy that had died down, the whole affair was revisited as Loosehorse TV's documentary into the All-Ireland football final was aired on RTÉ on Monday night.
And GAA fans across the length and breadth of the country heaped praise on the eye-opening programme.
Really enjoyed #AllIrelandDay documentary on RTE... Always great rivalry between Kerry and Dublin, captured very well.

Watching the brilliant #AllIrelandDay makes you wonder why the feck it has taken so long to make something like this?

Painful but a great prod of the #AllIrelandDay Kerry lost a game, the Kerins family lost so much more. Kudos to all involved, even the ref!

Referee David Coldrick, mic'd up, stole the show.

While commentator Darragh Maloney was also praised.

But the main topic of conversation was always going to be just one thing.
#AllIrelandDay Great documentary. The McMahon incident: A disgrace. How was Donaghy not sent off for grabbing Philly's finger with his eye?

How well the man telling the ref everything didn't spot McMahon gouging Donaghy but saw Sheehan slap some dub in the face #AllIrelandDay 👀

#AllIrelandDay. Lovely Programme. Unfortunately ref Goldrick got it badly wrong re fouling of Donaghy by Philly McMahon
