Ed Sheeran's "Galway Girl" Song

Ed Sheeran's "Galway Girl" Is Your New St. Patrick's Day Theme Song

Ed Sheeran has been dominating the charts, the radio, and award shows with his hit single, "Shape of You," but when his full Divide album was released on March 3, a few other songs quickly made their way onto our playlists. One of them, "Galway Girl," has caused a wave of attention due to the fact that St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner and the girl the song was reportedly inspired by has already been identified. The song, which seems to incorporate a bit of the background music from the original by Steve Earle, is about a night Ed spent drinking on Dublin's famous Grafton Street, where he met a girl in an Irish band and they ended up hitting it off.

The woman behind the lyrics is reportedly Niamh Dunne from the band Beoga, whom Ed teamed up with for the song. A few things don't add up, however, as Niamh is from Limerick and not Galway, and she just got married in January. "I'm so happy with 'Galway Girl', Ed Sheeran knows how to write a great pop song and it's so catchy," she told Ireland's RTÉ. "As for being the inspiration I dunno if you could go that far really, Christ almighty and I am a Limerick woman! My sister said she knew straight away it couldn't be about me when later in the song she beats him at darts and pool." Either way, the song is so much fun and will be all over the bars come March 17.
