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:
