Last month, the entire town of Galway (a Harbour city on Ireland’s west coast, made famous by Ed Sheeran) was tormented by the filming of Ed Sheeran‘s new video clip for ‘Galway Girl’, which was captured in a Galway pub.
The video is now out and features a slew of Irish stars and athletes, who are credited in the video’s YouTube description but to the Aussie eye – might be hard to locate. The most obvious, is the Galway girl herself, who is portrayed by Saoirse Ronan, most recently known for her role in the Oscar-nominated film Brooklyn.
Directed by Jason Koenig, the clip basically depicts a typical night out in Galway – Irish dancing, dart throwing, fiddle playing and fresh tattoos (typical Ed). Welcome to Galway.
