WATCH: Best man travels home from Australia for best friend's wedding and performs hilarious song Newsdesk Newsdesk

The bar has been set high for other best man speeches after this Sligo native stole the show.

Not alone did Ballymote native Gary Milmoe travel all the way home from Australia to best man for his best friend, he also found the time to create and perform a witty song inspired by the music Luke Kelly and Christy Brown.

In a video posted to Master of Ceremonies & DJ Martin Keogh's Facebook page, Gary said it took him a while to write his speech at the wedding of his buddy Adrian to his now-wife Fionnuala.

He joked that he had to edit the speech down to the point of nothing remaining, due to most of his stories being unrepeatable.

The best man, who now lives in South Australia, instead wrote a song based on those very stories.

"I'm as nervous as hell," he said, just before he started.

Watch the video above to see how he got on.
