Here's Cian Healy dressed flamboyantly and miming a classic power ballad

It turns out the Irish rugby player is quite the performer.

IT’S NO SECRET that Irish rugby star Cian Healy likes to perform — the Leinster star is a renowned DJ away from the pitch.

However, he’s truly taken things to another level with this latest clip, in which he’s seen singing the classic Bonnie Tyler power ballad ‘Total Eclipse Of The Heart’.

Healy performed the ballad in an ultimately successful attempt to win Electric Picnic tickets for members of the Irish women’s rugby team.
