Video: Leitrim GAA hero takes the mic and sings Amhrán na bhFiann after PA system failure
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.
