Is Saoirse Ronan the best thing about Ed Sheeran's Galway Girl video?

Who better to star in Ed Sheeran's music video for "Galway Girl" than a famous Irish gal herself, like Saoirse Ronan?!

"They went insane, so what you see in the video is "real".

Ed Sheeran has shared the full video for his song "Galway Girl".

In January the singer songwriter appeared on Irish radio to appeal for Irish dancers to star in his next music video, which was shot in Ireland.

Irish pair Tommy Tiernan and Hector Ó hEochagáin also make a brief cameo, where they're shown drinking at the table in the men's toilets.

The clip takes place in a rowdy Irish pub and when Sheeran spills beer on one of the locals, the disgruntled patron takes offense and performer, knocking him out.

Sheeran recently revealed that Ronan deliberately misspelled "Galway Girl" on his arm during filming - which he later had tatooed on. It actually says 'grill, ' g-r-i-l-l...

"Like, full on, she really took the [rip] out of me with this one", Sheeran later told a crowd in Glasgow, adding that he's still proud of it because Ronan wrote it.
