Ed Sheeran has released his highly-anticipated Irish-inspired song, Galway Girl.

When Ed Sheeran released the track list for his new album Divide, our eyes were drawn to one title - Galway Girl.

After weeks of speculation over what the song would sound like and be about, Sheeran finally released the full album today and we got to listen to the tune.

With mentions of Grafton Street, Carrickfergus, fiddles, céilis, an Irish band and trad tunes, there's no denying just how much the pop star loves our fair isle.

We haven't stopped listening to it this morning - and we can see this becoming a sure fire hit over the next few weeks.

Listen to the full track below.
