Ed Sheeran as Gaeilge!!! I hope he does many more.

Take a look at this ancroiait post (ancroiait puts up many of the "as Gaeilge" songs. So helpful.)

https://ancroiait.wordpress.com/tag/thinking-out-loud/

You'll find the video plus the lyrics in this pattern:

Line 1: Irish

Line 2: Approximate sound

Line 3. Word for word translation

Line 4. Translation

Nuair is léir nach seasann do chosa níos mó.
Noor is layr noch shasun du chusa nees moh.
When it’s clear that don’t stand your feet any more.
When it’s clear that your feet can’t stand any more ...

That was cool. I couldn't resist searching for it on spotify. It's not there yet.

I don't think there are many if any as Gaeilge ámhrain on Spotify. It'd be great to see icons like TG Lurgan make it on there with all their covers and such.
