This is the moment hundreds of students celebrating their Debs sang "Michael Healy Rae's on fire" after the politician turned up to the event.
The Kerry TD was criticised in recent weeks for attending funerals in the county but that didn't stop him appearing at Pobalscoil Inbhear Sceine's Debs in Kenmare last Friday.
Healy Rae (Ind) posed for photos with revellers and students say he wished them well.
Declan Bennett said the TD mixed with students before the DJ played Gala's hit 'FreeD from Desire' adopted by football fans at the Euro 2016 tournament in France.
Mr Bennett said: "The students sang "Healy Rae's On Fire" during the song that became famous for Will Griggs during the Euros.
"He was in great form and all the students posed for several pictures with him."
