Today was an historic day for Ireland. In what is seen as a sign of the peace and close friendship between The Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom the country saw the first State visit by a British monarch.

Meanwhile, on Twitter the visit proved to be a goldmine for the best of Irish online comedy (and lightening fast Photoshop skills). Here are some of the best from today.

According to @fionnkidney there was a massive Garda presence on O’Connell Street today, we can’t argue with him.

Kudos to @johnbirrane for tweeting this #fail of the day.

@GinaMurphy saw through the Queen’s disguise straight away (P.S, Does anyone think this is better than what she actually wore?).
