Ed Sheeran hit Shape of You performed in Irish language

Ed Sheeran’s global number one hit Shape of You has been covered by an Irish language school who have translated it into Gaelic.
The Gaelic version sounds fantastic and will surely delight the UK star, who has always been proud of his Irish heritage.

The video is the work of Irish language Summer Camp Coláiste Lurgan who have built up a strong reputation for performing popular contemporary songs in the Irish language.
Irish summer school Coláiste Lurgan have translated and performed Ed Sheeran's hit Shape of You
Their repertoire includes hits from the world’s biggest stars including Adele, Rihanna and Coldplay. Perhaps Sheeran is the star that suits them most of all and now he is also on their list.
It’s not the first time that an Ed Sheeran song has been translated and performed in Irish. The man himself performed his 2014 hit Thinking Out Loud in Irish for a radio special.
Coláiste Lurgan’s stylishly produced video takes place in a club and features members of the group singing the lyrics as other perform dance routines using props such as brooms and brushes.
It even features a potential romantic storyline between the two main singers.
Take a look at the video below.

Here are the lyrics translated into Irish

Ní heo’d an áit is fearr bheith lorg paisean
Tá an bear seo lán le gleo
Muide uilig leanacht orainn go brách
A’ spocadh asainn ‘rís dar ndó’
So, tar ‘nonn ‘s roinn do chuid rúnta ‘s brionglóid
Is fiú dúinn dul sa tseans ann,
Tóg mo lámh, stop, cas air an ceol ar an jukebox
Is damhsó’ muid go beo
Muid ag canadh linn
A stóir, toram anois do lámh
Cuireann do ghrása le mo neart is mo aoibh
Breathnaigí ormsa a chroí
Imí is báiní – Cuma faoi
Stór, ní theastaíonn óráid
Goile anois is bíodh do shúil’ ar mo ghníomh
Leanaigí ormsa a chroí
Lean-leanaigí seo’d é an tslí mm-mmm
I mo shúil ní bhíonn ann ach thú
A’ tarraingt siar nuair is ceart dom brú
Seo’d an grá bheas a’m go buan
I do dhiaidh, tá mé bailí
Is aréir d’airigh mé an tús
‘Nois mo shaol gaibhte siar gan chúis
Chuile lá bíonn an domhan ag tosú nua
I do dhiaidh – tá mé bailí
Oh – I – Oh – Oh- I -Oh I
I do dhiaidh – tá mé bailí
Oh – I – Oh – Oh- I -Oh I
I do dhiaidh – tá mé bailí
Oh – I – Oh – Oh- I -Oh I
I do dhiaidh – tá mé bailí
Chuile lá ‘g iarra’ an domhan a mhalartú
Ach i mo shúil ní bhíonn ann ach thú
Seachtain istigh, tús an scéil buailte linn
Ag dul amach anocht linn fhéin
Leis an gciste is tíosaí, muid ag lorg na bpíosaí
A’líonadh plátaí suas go béal
Is cuma milis nó searbh leanann muide ag labhairt
Faoi chlann ‘s cairde, smaointe ‘s saol,
Ag póg’ ansin ‘cúl an tacsaí, ag fágáil slán di
Cas an t-amhrán breá sin suas go réidh,
Muid ag canadh linn
A stóir, toram anois do lámh
Cuireann do ghrása le mo neart is mo aoibh
Breathnaigí ormsa a chroí
Imí is báiní – Cuma faoi
Stór, ní theastaíonn óráid
Goile anois is bíodh do shúil’ ar mo ghníomh
Leanaigí ormsa a chroí
Lean-leanaigí seo’d é an tslí mm-mmm
I mo shúil ní bhíonn ann ach thú
A’ tarraingt siar nuair is ceart dom brú
Seo’d an grá bheas a’m go buan
I do dhiaidh, tá mé bailí
Is aréir d’airigh mé an tús
‘Nois mo shaol gaibhte siar gan chúis
Chuile lá bíonn an domhan ag tosú nua
I do dhiaidh – tá mé bailí
Oh – I – Oh – Oh- I -Oh I
I do dhiaidh – tá mé bailí
Oh – I – Oh – Oh- I -Oh I
I do dhiaidh – tá mé bailí
Oh – I – Oh – Oh- I -Oh I
I do dhiaidh – tá mé bailí
Chuile lá ‘g iarra’ an domhan a mhalartú
Ach i mo shúil ní bhíonn ann ach thú
Bíodh tusa, ‘mo bhaebaí, bí liom
Bíodh tusa, ‘mo bhaebaí, bí liom
Bíodh tusa, ‘mo bhaebaí, bí liom
