Saoirse Ronan, star of the Oscar nominated Ladybird, as well as the recent music video for Ed Sheeran's Galway Girl, appeared on the Graham Norton Show last Friday. She revealed to the host that the tattoo Sheeran has in the video, one that reads "Galway Grill," is actually real, and how she actually wrote it.
Ronan told Norton that she "practiced for about a half an hour before they actually tattooed it onto him."
Now that is some courage!
The video for Sheeran's song has garnered much praise from fans since its release in May 2017:

I maintain that Saoirse Ronan's never been better than she was in Ed Sheeran's "Galway Girl" music video.— Kay Boatner (@kayboatner) January 8, 2018
Some people really wanted to get into that Galway Girl life:
If the music video for “Galway Girl” doesn’t make you want to marry Ed Sheeran and travel to Ireland then you are doing life wrong.— rachel (@rachmendozaa) December 29, 2017

This fan account thought a new drinking game may be in the making:
New drinking game: take a shot whenever someone asks Saoirse about her name or about Galway Girl's music video/misspelled tattoo— Saoirse-Ronan.com (@saoirseronancom) February 9, 2018
It's not every day a guy gets a purposely misspelled tattoo for the sake of a shot in his music video and not everything else.
