This 25-year-old's version of Irish folks song 'Grace' is sure to be one of the best you'll hear.

Tyrone native Ceállach Reid published this music video to her Facebook page last month, where it really started to take off. So far, it has almost quarter of a million views since 3 November.

The video,which has been shared more than 3,000 times, is one of many the young singer has recorded, but there is a special place in her heart for this tune.

"Grace is one of my favourite songs to sing as the lyrics are beautiful, but I have many others too including: Raglan Road, Streets of New York and Caledonia," she told Independent.ie.

"I am a massive fan of Christy Moore, Cara Dillon and Arthur and The Fureys so they inspire my love of music and writing also."

Ceállach has already built up quite an online following with around 13,000 Facebook fans, which she hopes will help fulfil one of her biggest ambitions.

"One of my biggest dreams is to sing our National Anthem in Croke Park at a football game as GAA is a large part of my family and community," she said.

"I am a full time primary school teacher, but I hope to use my musical talents to do more in schools and communities."
