Sadly, not everyone loves Ed's Irish banger as much as we do...
It's the Number 1 song in the country and, at least in this writer's opinion, the best song Ed Sheeran has ever written. But, tragically, not everyone is feeling the majesty of Ireland's new national anthem 'Galway Girl'.

And while we admit that after St Patrick's Day we have been hearing this tune EVERYWHERE, we still just cannot bring ourselves to hate on its cheery, rap-jig mastery. It's the 'Danny Bhoy' of our generation but with more beatboxing, doritos references and tales of mild alcoholism.
But, hey, at least the people who hate it are making us laugh with their savage anti-Sheeran memes. Here are just a handful of our favourites.
Canny just be me that is outraged ed Sheeran has the audacity to name his song Galway girl when there's already a bangin tune wae that name— Olivia (@_oliviiawilson) March 19, 2017

'Galway girl' is the reason art is dead. It's almost a joke how bad that song is. I hate people.— fka jack (@jack_sheppard14) March 9, 2017

Me, being honest: "Galway Girl" is an awful song.
