VIDEO - Galway GAA star performs stirring rendition of Luke Kelly classic on ferry ride home Newsdesk Newsdesk

You can hear a pin drop while Paul Flaherty serenaded his team mates on a boat ride home in Galway

The 23-year-old has just contributed to Monivea Abbey GAA club's 5-10 to 1-6 victory over the Aran Islands on Inis Mór on Sunday but delivered an even greater display on the journey home.

The players joined in a sing-song on the 45-minute boat journey back to the mainland, leaving tourists shocked in amazement.

Paul's version of Luke Kelly's The Night Visiting Song would leave the hair standing up on the back of your neck.

Monivea keeper Denis Farragher told "He was playing wing-forward during the match scoring a point. Paul is well known amongst the lads for his ballads. A big Luke Kelly fan.

"There were a lot of tourists on board and they all came down to our deck to listen to the lads singing."
