Sligo man Gary Milmoe went above and beyond with his best man duties last week when he performed a very special song for the bride and groom.

The Ballymote native crossed the world from Australia for the big event and decided to make an extra effort with a creative contribution instead of a speech.

At the reception in the Breaffy House Hotel in Mayo, Gary said he had too many unrepeatable stories about the groom Adrian. Instead, he brought out the guitar and sang to his best friend and bride Fionnuala and gave a flawless performance of a song he’d penned ‘over the water’.

Gary reworded Christy Moore’s much-loved song ‘Casey’ to make a special wish to the newlyweds with funny references that the crowd loved.
