Late Late Viewers praise Kellie Harrington after surprise performance

"Just when you think Kellie Harrington couldn't become even more of a legend. Is there anything that lady can't do?"

Last night's special St. Patrick's Day edition of the Late Late Show saw a number of stars swing by to chat to Ryan Tubridy, and among them was Olympic gold medalist Kellie Harrington.

The Dublin boxer was coming off a busy day, after serving as the parade's grand marshal alongside Paralympic swimmer and fellow gold medalist, Ellen Keane, but she still managed to pop by the RTÉ studio along with Stephen Kenny, Moya Brennan, Oliver Callan and John C. Reilly.

There, Kellie delighted viewers by showing off a hidden talent - her voice.

With some encouragement, the boxer gave a stirring performance of the traditional Irish song Grace, delighting viewers at home.
