Liverpool FC has been forced to block comments on its tribute to Queen Elizabeth II, after a tidal wave of comments slamming the former monarch flooded underneath.

Liverpool has a long history of being connected with Ireland, often being referred to as the nation’s “second capital”.

Fans weighed in on the unfortunate scenario on Friday as the Commonwealth mourned the 96-year-old icon.

“An elite, world class footballing institution having to turn off its replies. Awful,” one wrote to Twitter.

“Let‘s face it we are not all royalists, but let’s show some respect,” another wrote.

Meanwhile, some football fans in Ireland celebrated the news with a cruel chant in Dublin after news of the monarch’s death broke.

A video circulating online shows football fans chanting in celebration at what is understood to be Dublin’s Tallaght Stadium.

“Lizzy’s in a box,” they sang to the tune of the KC & the Sunshine Band song, Give It Up.

The video posted at just after 6am (AEST) shows the packed stands all chanting in unison.

It has been liked by almost 57,000 people and shared 16.4 thousand times.

The stadium was hosting a UEFA Europa Conference League match between Ireland’s Shamrock Rovers and Sweden’s Djurgårdens IF Fotboll.

Another video from Derry in Ireland’s north shows people on the streets in celebration.

People are seen gathering on the streets, leaving their cars in the middle of the street and even climbing roofs in celebration.

Queen Elizabeth died at Balmoral Castle in Scotland overnight. The Palace revealed she was under medical supervision amid escalating concerns for her health.

The Queen’s death was announced at 6.30pm local time (3.30am AEST). Britain’s longest-serving monarch was 96 years old.

Irish President Michael D Higgins also shared his condolences.

“Her Majesty served the British people with exceptional dignity,” he said.

“Her personal commitment to her role and extraordinary sense of duty were the hallmarks of her period as Queen, which will hold a unique place in British history.”
