This may be the best GAA fundraising performance of all time

Some guys really love their local GAA club, and then there’s Adrian Brereton.

A former leader on RTÉ’s Operation Transformation, Adrian brought the house down at a fundraising show for Edenderry GAA in Co Offaly last Saturday night.

Based on the popular show in the US, the LipSync Battle has recently joined the race night and white collar boxing as a staple of GAA fundraising. It sees performers take to the stage as their favourite artists in a bid to outdo each other with an outrageous act.

Well, in Adrian’s case it’s safe to say he literally smashed it.

Taking his inspiration from Miley Cyrus’ hit Wrecking Ball, Adrian’s epic performance had it all - even his own wrecking ball.

There are some moments that aren’t for the faint of heart, but it is easy to see why Adrian won the competition out.

You must stay with it until the end - we promise it’s worth it.

Just wow!

We’d love to know what Miley Cyrus thinks of this!

* The event was ran by StageServ Ireland and the video was kindly given to us by Darragh Kelly, who shot the performance.
