Is Ed Sheeran really including a cover of an Irish wedding staple on his new album?
We'll be honest; whenever we're at an Irish wedding and the band starts playing 'Galway Girl,' we head straight for the bar and dive headfirst into several pints of stout.
It's an awful song, which makes us curious why Ed Sheeran has decided to include the Steve Earle staple on the tracklisting for his new album.
We can but hope that it's all just a massive coincidence and he's just grabbed the title.
Anything Mundy can do...

Of course, not everyone hates the song as much as we do and some people are genuinely excited at the prospect of an Ed Sheeran 'Galway Girl' cover.
