TWEETS: The best reaction as Dundalk seal one of the greatest nights in Irish football history

Incredible stuff.

At the very least, Dundalk will be playing Europa League football this season after a stunning victory over BATE Borisov on a truly historic night at Tallaght Stadium.

Thanks to a comprehensive 3-0 victory on the night – sealed with goals from David McMillan (2) and Robbie Benson – Stephen Kenny’s men claimed a 3-1 aggregate win over a club who have featured regularly in the Champions League in recent years, an achievement that should not be underestimated.

In the process, Dundalk qualified for the Champions League play-offs and ensured that, at a minimum, they will be playing in the Europa League this season.

Not only that, but they ensured a payday of at least €5.4 million while doing so, a windfall beyond the wildest dreams of teams in the League of Ireland.

And, it was no more than they deserved. It will take a while to truly sink in, but here is some of the best immediate reaction to a truly memorable night for Dundalk and for football in this country.

Hearty congratulations to all involved.
