The 10 best Twitter reactions to RTE's Shane Lowry documentary
RTE viewers were bowled over by Shane Lowry and his family during the station's documentary on the Open champion on Monday evening.
The documentary charted Shane's career from his amateur days and Irish Open win all the way through this summer when he lifted the Claret Jug on Irish soil in Royal Portrush.
With interviews from Shane himself, his siblings, parents, wife and friends, the programme won over the nation. Twitter was awash with praise for the documentary and the 'humble' Shane Lowry.
In from work & had to put on the @rte doc on @ShaneLowryGolf Absolutely class!! Fantastic family, great people around him & what a legend the man is himself. Savage career that will surely only get better & he deserves every bit of it. I’d only love 18 holes now ⛳️ #shanelowry— Mick Delahunty (@mickdela) December 31, 2019
That Shane Lowry documentary was incredible. So much raw emotion in it from all of the contributors. This is a documentary that should be on Netflix. Brilliant and captivating. #ShaneLowry— Ruairí Fallon (@RuairiFallon) December 31, 2019
Regardless whether you have an interest in Golf or not Shane Lowry is one of the more likeable & down to earth fellas. Despite his success he's completely modest. A really sound family to. #ShaneLowryOpen— L. NíHéineacháin (@LaobhaoiseNihE) December 30, 2019

Thoroughly enjoying this #ShaneLowry documentary. He isn't just 1 of the nicest men in sport but he's 1 of the nicest men in Ireland. No wonder @IanDempsey breakfast show listeners voted him Sportsman Of The the Year AND Man Of The Year! Totally deserves his success. So humble.— ArcticChimpanzee (@ArcticChimpanze) December 30, 2019
