In this morning's game of International Rules, Ireland were sadly defeated by Australia however all was not lost.

While many of the players on the pitch failed to leave a lasting impression, one Irish man who gave a brilliant performance was opera singer Vincent O'Connor, who sang the national anthem before the game kicked off.

While Vincent's version of the age-old song is impressive, it's not the first time he's done Ireland proud with his voice.
