Watch Ed Sheeran Get Clobbered in the Saoirse Ronan-Starring 'Galway Girl' Video

She played the fiddle in an Irish band. She fell in love with an English man. And now Ed Sheeran’s Galway Girl has her own video.

Saoirse Ronan (Atonement, Brooklyn, Hannah) stars as the pub-crawling, titular character in the official clip for "Galway Girl," which was shot in some of the Irish party town's finest boozers and dropped Wednesday. 

The English singer shot the clip from his own point-of-view, as Ronan twirls and gesticulates and leads him on an adventure through the Galway nightlife.  The journey continues as Sheeran is chased by fans, scores new ink, plays darts and gets clobbered for, well, struggling to hold his drink. 

Sheeran collaborated with Irish band Beoga on the traditional folk-flavored track, which joins "Shape of You" and "Castle on the Hill" as the third song from Divide to get a full-production video.
