Yeah We're Getting Hammered – But This Referee Is An Absolute Disgrace
Here's how Twitter is reacting...
Whatever we think about that Irish performance today, there's one thing that pretty much everyone agrees on: this referee is a disgrace.
A referee doesn't always decide a game, but on this occasion the Irish fans certainly think he is.
Twitter is going absolutely crazy right now and these were some of the best reactions.

Didn't give a penalty when the Ireland player got kicked in the head, nor did he give a penalty for handball, something wrong with this ref— Jenny Claridge (@JCClaridge) June 18, 2016
