Saoirse Ronan stars in Ed Sheeran’s Galway Girl video
The video for Ed Sheeran’s traditional Irish music inspired song ‘Galway Girl’ has been released -and it features a number of Irish stars.
The song, which features on Sheeran’s mega-selling album ÷, is already a favourite around the world and people are sure to enjoy the video.
It was shot in Galway and Dublin and shows the singer coming off stage at the end of a concert and heading straight for the Irish pubs, starting with Galway’s O’Connell’s Bar.
The video features comedian Tommy Tiernan, hardman actor Peter Coonan and folk band Beoga, who co-wrote the song.
The most famous face (apart from Sheeran) is Oscar nominated star Saoirse Ronan, who takes Ed by the hand and leads him on an adventure around the town.
The video was directed by Jason Koenig, and shot by Sheeran – which allowed us to see his night unfold from his point of view.
Take a look at the video below.
