The Galway Girl video is out, complete with "Galway Grill" but only a tease of any violin playing. Not at as good as my imagination was hoping but certainly not terrible.
On edit: After watching the video six or seven times now I'm warming to it. It's mostly shot by Sheeran from his POV so Saoirse is in it A LOT. I like the ending after he's revived and Saoirse smiles a lovely smile and takes him to the roof window.

Hey, jlent.  Here's a little article about the video and favorable fan reactions: http://tinyurl.com/lopuloe

I'm not into her dye job....there's nothing wrong with her natural hair.  The song.... :-[  It's not bad although he could have included a few closeup shots.

That 'do was done only recently and first revealed in Instagrams:

My friend and I were debating it. She hates it. I figure it was done for the video and won't last long - a two-toned job creating dark roots and everything else platinum. I doubt anyone's seen Saoirse's natural hair color for many, many years.

Galway Girl MV certainly was a very fresh view of her, song is catchy and she will have a nice exposure.

Now I really wanna see Saoirse in a comedy :)
Thinking this right now with high enthusiasm.

More people, or at least more young people, will see the video than they have seen any of her movies. I wonder if this will move her "Starmeter."

Good point jlent.  Have you seen "Their Finest"?

I've heard of it, but that's about it. World War II drama with Gemma Arterton. Any good?

Yes, it just ended its relatively short run down here.  Such a shame so many people don't know what a quality film is anymore.  It's well written and focuses on those who were making films in a very difficult environment while trying to help the war effort at the same time.  There are so many great stories to be told about the war years whether fictional or otherwise.  Terrific cast as well.

Did you notice that Saoirse throws a bullseye in Galway Girl?  (Maybe done with smoke and mirrors?)

Good exposure I suppose, albeit a silly song. I can't believe the number of views for GG on YouTube. Didn't realize Sheeran had such a huge following. Not my cup-of-tea, I much prefer Hozier.

Whatever the genre, I'd be first in line.

Yeah, he's everywhere, especially his singles. His most popular one this year got 800 million last time I checked. GG will at least get 100 mill.

FYI, I don't have IMDB Pro but Saoirse, who is listed in the top 500 on their Starmeter, is up 213 points this week. She was down 27 last week. I'm guessing it's all from the Galway Girl video.

So it seems does Saoirse... according to this rag.

Its so weird to see Saoirse being so much on the news :) even dating speculation is happening.
