Musician Damien Dempsey took to Facebook to express his love for the cover of his song, posting:

I had tears in my eyes when this amazing young singer from Connemara in the West of Ireland sent me this video, my young friend Roisin Seoige. To hear the song as Gaeilge makes its all the more poignant and powerful and my God what a voice.
