GAA volunteers are praised for their generosity and dedication but they don't fall short when it comes to ingenuity either.
Ahead of the All-Ireland junior club football semi-final between Ardnaree of Mayo and Monaghan's Rockcorry at Pairc Sean Mac Diarmada inCarrick-on-Shannon, the national anthem was played out over the speaker but not long into the song... the recording failed.
Up stepped quick-thinking Seán Ó Suilleabháin of Leitrim GAA. He grabbed a microphone and gave a rousing rendition of Amhrán na bhFiann that was wonderfully received by the crowd.
Watch what happened below:
Ardnaree emerged as victors on the day on a scoreline of 0-11 to 0-6.
