Now THAT is a wedding video.

THE MEATH PRIEST who brought the house down at a wedding by singing a personal version of Hallelujah has gone global.

Father Ray Kelly’s epic performance in Oldcastle, Co Meath has won the attention of the international media and racked up almost 2.4million views on YouTube in the last two days alone.

He told yesterday that he had only visited YouTube “about twice” before being told his song had been uploaded.
