Galway musician mixes Ed Sheeran’s Galway Girl with the Irish original

A song called Galway Girl is one of the highlights of British songwriter Ed Sheeran’s new album.

It isn’t a cover of the classic Irish song but an original that the star wrote with Irish band Beoga. The song is about the band’s fiddle player Niamh Dunne.

Now an Irish musician has created a video which sees him perform a mash up of Sheeran’s new song and the original Galway Girl.
