If this doesn’t get you pumped up, there’s something wrong.
Baritone Vincent O’Connor was asked to sing our national anthem before the International Rules match against Australia this morning and he did not disappoint.
Passionately belting out every syllable, he had the Irish team, management and fans all singing in unison. Check it out here:

His performance won plaudits online:
Yer man has been waiting to do that his whole life. Go on ye boy ye!

That makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand. Superb

Unfortunately, Vincent’s passion wasn’t matched by the players who went down 53-50 and lost the series 2-0 to their Australian counterparts.
But the anthem was good, right?
