Fantastic win for Ireland over World Champs West Indies at Sabina Park tonight

Beating the Twenty20 world champs in their own back yard is pretty freakin' sweet.

As Trent Johnston explains below, Ireland don't reach these sorts of heights, in any sport, too often.

Over in Kingston in Jamaica, Ireland managed to restrict the West Indies to 116 for eight in their 20 overs. With the very gettable target, Ireland set about their task with some relish and the boys in green did the deed with five balls to spare and with only four wickets down.

Ed Joyce went 40 not out and the winning runs were scored by that man Kevin O'Brien (above).

The result even cheered up disconsolate Arsenal fan Dara O'Briain

Congrats lads, you made us all proud yet again.
