Rob Kearney had the perfect response when Shane Ross got his name wrong on Twitter

Gonna need some ice for that burn...

Sunday has been a day of celebration for the Irish rugby team, and rightly so.

Having touched down in Dublin following their Grand Slam triumph on St. Patrick's Day, the Six Nations champions headed straight to the Shelbourne Hotel for a well-earned drinks reception.

Cue a photo opportunity for the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport and quite the ball dropped as Shane Ross shouted out Johnny Sexton and Dave Kearney on Twitter despite posing with the older of the Kearney brothers...

Update:

Ross has deleted his original tweet, highlighting his gaffe some hours after the fact...

Update ends

Quick as flash, Rob delivered the only possible response, really:

Still, strong braces game from the Minister if nothing else.

Elsewhere, Cian Healy hailed the Irish fans for their support throughout the Six Nations, in light of the planned Aviva Stadium homecoming bash getting cancelled due to the weather.
