Ed Sheeran has revealed that Tommy Tiernan features in his new music video.
Speaking to Cooper and Luke on 98FM's Big Breakfast this morning, Ed opened up about filming the video for 'Galway Girl' in Salthill this week.
The singer explained that he originally wanted to shoot it in Dublin but he opted against it because he thought it was going to get a "bit dangerous" in the city and was also "going to cost a fortune to get the police".
He also said that Tommy asked him if the mayhem in Galway on Tuesday evening happens a lot:
"I said to him I shot a video in my home town in Suffolk and literally nothing near what happened in Galway. I do think it's just an Irish thing. I don't think there's any other place in the world like Ireland for me."
Ed also revealed that he met the original Galway Girl, who Steve Earl wrote his famous song about. Ed says the woman also appears in the upcoming video.
Sheeran then told 98FM that he's always dreamed of opening up a chain of bars called 'Drinking Out Loud'!
“I was thinking of doing like a Weatherspoon’s type thing, and opening up a really shit bar called Drinking out Loud’ but like the worst bar that you’ve ever gone to, with a one £1.50 pint and a burger that’s gone off!"
