WATCH: Shane Long gives incredible rendition of Ed Sheeran song at Robbie Brady’s wedding

The Tipperary man can do no wrong.

Shane Long is now well-known for his musical skills as well as his footballing expertise, and it looks like the Southampton and Ireland striker has been honing his skills somewhat as he sounds better than ever.

Long was at Robbie Brady’s wedding to his long-term partner Kerrie Harris over the weekend in St Peter and Paul’s Church in Limerick before heading to the five-star Adare Manor.

It was here where Long decided to whip out a guitar at the reception and showcase his musical prowess. The Tipp man entertained guests as they waited for dinner with a rendition of ‘Don’t’ by Ed Sheeran.

His wife Kayleah shared a video of the moment on Instagram, which has been garnering some serious attention.

My kinda Ed! @teddysphotos ????

Brady’s teammates Paul McShane and Jeff Hendrick acted as best man and groomsman at the ceremony, respectively, while the likes of Glenn Whelan, Kevin Doyle and Stephen Ward were also in attendance.

Ireland kitman Dick Redmond, Leicester City’s Jonny Evans alongside Irish models Nadia Forde and Michelle McGrath and now-retired Ireland star John O’Shea also attended the lavish ceremony.

Of course, Long’s history with music goes on years – with ‘The Shane Long Song’ stealing hearts a couple of years ago at the Euros.

He also, singlehandedly, saved West Brom FC’s rendition of ‘Twelve days of Christmas’ some years back. Looks like the striker has a back-up career once the football dries up.
