Ed Sheeran gets meaty tattoo to celebrate new single

Ed Sheeran’s comedy Irish rap ‘Galway Girl’ now has a comedy tattoo to go with it. He recently got the name of the song inked on his arm, only realising afterwards that the tattoo had a typo in it.
Speaking at a show in Glasgow, Sheeran explained that the error (or perhaps not) was the work of actor Saoirse Ronan, with whom he recently filmed the video for the song.
“When we were filming it, I meant to get a tattoo of her handwriting saying ‘Galway Girl'”, he said. “It actually says Galway Grill. Like, full on, she really took the piss out of me with this one. It actually says Galway Grill. G-r-i-l-l”.
He’s not angry though. “I’m actually kind of proud of her”, he went on. “It’s the kind of thing that I would do”.
If there isn’t a Kebab shop in Galway called Galway Grill by Tuesday, everyone is letting themselves down. Do remember to proof read the sign though. Proof reading is important.
