TWEETS: Ireland ran over Italy in the Six Nations today and here's the reaction

It was never really in doubt after a great first half showing...

Ireland overcame Italy in the Aviva Stadium today in a result which will go some way towards alleviating the negativity surrounding Ireland's 2016 Six Nations.

Tries from... well a lot of Irish players paved the way for a comprehensive 58-15 victory over a pretty poor Italian side.

There's lots of reasons to be cheerful about the performance which showed a far more accurate execution from the players. A number of young players came on and impressed including Connacht's Ultan Dillane and Finlay Bealham.

Let's hope they can carry on and produce a similar performance in their last game against Scotland.

But for now, we'll focus on the aftermath of the Italian contest and how people reacted to the good result.
