TG Lurgan has released an Irish language cover of Lil Nas X's Old Town Road. 

First, rapper Lil Nas X independently released Old Town Road, the country trap song that launched thousands of Yeehaw Challenge videos on TikTok. Then he was signed to Columbia Records. Next, country singer Billy Rae Cyrus recorded a cover with Lil Nas, which has topped the Billboard 100 for 12 weeks, followed by remixes from Diplo, Young Thug, and Cupcakke. 

Now, finally, we have a cover of Old Town Road as Gaeilge

Coláiste Lurgan, Ireland's coolest Irish language school, which is renowned for its meticulously performed and produced Irish language covers of popular songs, released their version of Old Town Road this week.

There's a horse, there's breakdancing, there's line dancing - there's even an Irish flag cowboy hat. 

Lyrics in Irish below: 

Mé goil a’ bualadh bóthar ar a’ gcapall ór

Mé goil ar aghaidh ar a’ mbóthar mór

Mé goil a’ bualadh bóthar ar a’ gcapall ór

Mé goil ar aghaidh ar a’ mbóthar mór


Tá mo chapall ‘muigh sa mback

Mo hata droim ar ais

I gcónaí tarraingt raic

Is mo mhada le mo hais

‘Bhfuil tú ag iarra’ fáisc-eadh

B’fhearr liom é ná Porche

Gach rud beagán bailí

Bí 'g imeacht do mo phóirse 


Cuma liom sa diabhal faoin bhfaisin

Bíodh an diabhal ag faisin


Caillte  gan aon eochair

Rinne mé an dochar

Ainbheart ar mo bheaibí

Cuma leí ar aon chaoi

Mise gconaí scrúrtaí

Spalpaí agus stiucaí

A' mhaidin thana dhúisigh

D’fhág sí mé  ‘s chua’ sí


Cuma liom sa diabhal faoin bhfaisin

Bíodh an diabhal ag faisin


Thar am, bheith n-ann

Rudaí dhéana’ níos fearr

Caith’ an iomarc’ ama ar mo shean guitear 

'Bheabaí, fág a’ bealach fainní ór Fendi is fearr

Staróg ar an raidio mo Mhasarati thar barr

Fan ar dheis ‘s bí in ann

Mar an Malboro man ni bheidh tú gán

Ba mhaith liom ghoil  'r ais siar me a’ bualadh bóthar

Mé ag iarra' goil ar a’ mbóthar mór
