An Irish family has taken YouTube by storm with their hit song "He Drinks Tequila (while she talks dirty in Spanish.')"

The country music sensations are called Crystal Swing and are made up of Mary Murray-Burke and her children Derek (18) and Dervla (17).

Just four weeks ago their catchy tune had attracted about 600 vies on YouTube.

However, the video went viral so much so that it has now been viewed some 162,000 times with 110,000 in the past week alone.

Even U.S. talk show star Ellen DeGeneres is a fan and has tweeted her followers to check out the Irish group.

The family, from Lisgoold in East Cork, catapulted to fame after appearing on the digital TV channel, Rural TV.

"The whole thing has been a life-changing experience -- I don't think we would ever have thought this possible even in our wildest dreams," Mary said.

Her children Dervla and Derek say they have been stunned by the interest.

"We haven't had time to respond to it all -- there has been so much interest it has taken us all totally by surprise," Mary said.

"We have worked very well as a threesome. But I think they want to have a career, maybe get to play some big concerts and, who knows, maybe even tour in America," she said.

"It has been crazy -- we never expected anything like this kind of interest," Mary said.

"We have had every Irish newspaper and radio station on to us.

"We've even had calls from overseas. The song has been played a lot, and the amazing thing is that people are now starting to even recognize us on the street.
