Wonderful wedding speech to tune of Fairytale of New York

Guests at the wedding reception at the Salthill Hotel in Galway joined with the chorus toasting the couple and roared with laughter at such gems as this.

Asked will you marry me

So I turned my face away
And dreamed of takeaways

Watch the heartwarming video and see if you can resist singing along.
