If only all Gaeltacht experiences were this much fun…

The buachaillí agus cailíní of Coláiste Lurgan, Galway, have just released their version of Avicii’s ‘Wake Me Up’ and naturally, it’s as Gaeilge (and brilliant).

It’s another cracking performance from the school as we’ve already seen them perform Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’, ‘The Cup Song’ from the movie Perfect Pitch and Bastille’s hit tune ‘Pompeii’.

You can check out the lyrics over on the Coláiste Lurgan YouTube page, but good luck trying to pronounce half of it correctly. You can also check out Avicii’s original below…
