WATCH: The Irish women's football team shut down rude, sexist tweets

"We'll just go out and prove them wrong".

Today marks International Women's Day, and for the day that's in it, 3 Ireland met up with some of the Irish women's football team to get their responses to some abusive tweets.

Needless to say, they dealt with them quite well. Have a look for yourself.

Claire O'Riordan, Sophie Perry, Niamh Fahey and Amber Barret feature in the short video, as they laugh off the sexist tweets that they receive.

They encourage anyone who has any issue with ladies football to get out and actually go see a game (tickets are only €5 if you're under 19, as Amber Barrett points out).

Responding to one tweet which read, "Not being sexist, but women's football is shocking", Claire O'Riordan brilliantly responds, "We'll just go out and prove them wrong."

Proper order.
