Watch Irish dancers from Galway dance to Ed Sheeran's Shape of You

Ed, have you seen this?

Earlier this month Ed Sheeran announced that he has written a song about Galway, aptly named Galway Girl.


If that didn't excite people enough, he also mentioned that he'd be filming the video there too. However, what perhaps got people most excited was when Ed mentioned that he would be looking for 'proper ceili dancers' to star in the video.

This obviously set the Irish dancing world alight, considering what an opportunity it would be for this type of dance to feature in a pop music video.

With this, plenty of dance schools around the country have been practicing their best steps along to Ed's biggest hits. Last week we saw Fusion Fighters put together to showcase their talent and now a group of Galway Girls have done the same.

Eight dancers from the Hession School of Irish Dance put together a routine for one of Ed's latest hits Shape of You.


The girls dance on the Claddagh in the heart of Galway. They begin by dancing in perfect time to Shape or You and gradually transition into A Lovely Madness by Beoga, a band who are also featuring on Ed's upcoming song.

Ed needn't bother putting a video together for his new song Galway Girl, he can just use this one.
