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.
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...
Ross has deleted his original tweet, highlighting his gaffe some hours after the fact...
Oops! Wrong Kearney!! Last tweet said pic was Sexton and Dave , but it’s Rob. Kearney replied “Thanks Leo” ! Touché . Congrats again. pic.twitter.com/H6elYQEIE5

Quick as flash, Rob delivered the only possible response, really:
You’re welcome Leo 😉

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.
Gutted we couldn't make the homecoming happen, the support has been tremendous throughout the tournament and I just want to say a huge thank you to all of you, this will be with me forever!
