WATCH: 'I'd Vote 4u' is the latest election campaign song from politician Trevor Gilligan

That'd be Ireland for you...

South Dublin Councillor Trevor Gilligan has released an original song he wrote for the forthcoming local elections called 'I’d Vote 4u', and despite the potentially off-putting nature of the title, it's actually quite catchy.

It isn't the first song Gilligan has released either. Visit his YouTube page and you'll see a number of tracks he has written in the past, including his wedding song 'Luckiest Guy In The World', and the festive anthem 'Christmas Kiss'.

He was even kind enough to leave the lyrics to the song in the description to the video.

It goes: "I been knockin' on doors Since 2004. And I'm hoping you can help me out. If you need a hand, I'll be your man. Feel free to give me a shout. I been born, I been raised, educated, dedicated to the place I call home. And I'd vote 4u. Won't you vote 4 me?"

Poetic.

Take a look.

The song is written by Gilligan himself, but is sung by Waterford native Conor Cleare.

Speaking about the song, Gilligan said: "I've always wanted to write an election song. I’ve had this song on my mind for years but was too shy to release it. It has a '60s rock and roll vibe to it, something I wouldn't normally write."
