At last, that black stain in Irish rugby has been removed, with a first ever victory over the All Blacks in 29 attempts. –  Irish Times. 

Ireland end 111 years of hurt to beat the All Blacks.

Fully deserved it was too. Soldier Field crackled with atmosphere, vast swathes of the 63,300 bedecked in green watched Ireland dominate vast swathes of the first-half and kept counter-punching in a riotous rollercoaster of a second half, ultimately outscoring the back-to-back world champions and runaway winners of the Rugby Championship by five tries to four, and thus end their world record 18-match sequence of test wins.
