ED SHEERAN HAS made no secret of the fact that there’s a lot of Irish influences on his upcoming album.


He’s apparently recorded a song called Galway Girl, and wrote another one influenced by a visit to Wexford.

Wexford? Inspirational? Who’d have thought it?

Irish band Seo Linn met while working with Coláiste Lurgan on *those* Irish versions of pop songs you keep seeing popping up everywhere.


The band got together to record a version of Castle on the Hill and it actually sounds kinda better than the original.
