Enjoy the singing priest's epic Hallelujah? Here are his other at-the-altar moments...

He’s fond of a bit of Westlife too.

SINCE MEATH PRIEST Fr Ray Kelly sang Hallelujah at a couple’s wedding last Saturday, it’s been quite the week.

The video of his performance was uploaded to YouTube on Monday. By yesterday, it had 2.4million views. Today, that figure has risen to almost 8.5million.

But Hallelujah isn’t the only tune Fr Kelly likes to belt out for newlyweds.

He’s also been known to treat them to Westlife’s You Raise Me Up, as he did at the wedding of Mary and John:
