    Ireland 40-29 New Zealand

    To be fair the New Zealand Herald has been gracious in All Blacks defeat with one story on their website hailing "the magnificent men in green".

    The two teams meet again in a fortnight's time at the Aviva. If you have tickets for that one, clutch them tight.

    It is going to be an almighty encounter.

    Bye for now.

    Ireland 40-29 New Zealand

    There is a fair bit of schadenfreude sloshing around on social media after the New Zealand newspaper the NZ Herald mocked up both Australia coach Michael Cheika and Lions coach Warren Gatland as clowns in recent weeks.

    Ireland captain Rory Best on BT Sport: "We know New Zealand are a great side and knew we would have to go out and attack them. We put in so much work over the last couple of weeks and this win has been a long time coming, but history has been made and we're absolutely ecstatic.

    "Thanks to the fans - the atmosphere here has been amazing, it's been like a home match."

    Ireland 40-29 New Zealand

    You have to go back to 2012 - and that famous 38-21 defeat at Twickenham - to find the All Blacks on the wrong end of a heavier scoreline.

    It is just the fifth time in history that the All Blacks have conceded 40 points in a match.

    Ireland 40-29 New Zealand

    If Wales' defeat by Australia earlier today was a result to make you fear for the Lions, that was one to make you optimistic.

    The All Blacks slipped from their stratospheric standards and Ireland had the heart, fight and skill to take advantage.

    A slightly less romantic take from World Rugby big wig Brett Gosper, but he had a point.

    That was a Test match that had everything.

    After Munster's emotional win over Glasgow, that is some tribute to Anthony Foley, a national and provincial legend.

  14. Full-time

    Ireland 40-29 New Zealand

    111 years of trying and Ireland have finally beaten New Zealand.

    Ireland 40-29 New Zealand

    The hooter blows.

    New Zealand want the final say, even in defeat though and are running from deep.

  17. Missed penalty

    Ireland 40-29 New Zealand

    New Zealand knock on and give away a penalty.

    Joe Carbery screws his kick wide. But the clock is down to a mere minute.

    This is over.

    Start the party. 

  18. Converted try

    Ireland 40-29 New Zealand - Robbie Henshaw, con Carbery

    Absolute scenes!

    Robbie Henshaw takes a short pop off  number eight Jamie Heaslip and like a battlecruiser ploughs through the remains of the All Black defence.

    Surely that is enough?

    Another two from Joe Carbery.
