Diesel demands and Rory's Bahamas regret - it's the sporting tweets of the week

McIlroy and O’Driscoll made the cut during a time when Twitter was dominated by another Irish athlete.

1. One man dominated Twitter this week with this message

And some of the reactions were glorious …

2. First, the FAI put a metaphorical arm around Conor McGregor

3. Then Neil Seery, eh, threw his toys out of the pram

4. Paddy Barnes had to get in on the action too

5. Elsewhere, Brian O’Driscoll was losing no sleep over Munster’s European predicament

6. Round two – Barnes was in flying form this week

7. Rory McIlroy was getting FOMO after seeing how Rickie Fowler, Jordan Speith and Co were spending their week off in the Bahamas
