Have you really heard "Stay With Me" by Sam Smith until you've heard this Irish cover of it?
Oh Colaiste Lurgan, how do you keep making such amazing music videos?
Ireland’s coolest Irish language school, which hosts talented teens every summer in the Inverin Gaeltacht of Co. Galway, released in 2014 an awesome cover of Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me,” “Ar Mo Thaobh” as Gaeilge.
They were on a serious roll that summer, with covers of “Riptide” by Vance Joy, “All of Me” by John Legend and “And We Danced” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. All the more impressive when you consider the videos entirely produced on a volunteer basis by the school’s staff and students and Inverin locals.
“Riptide,” Vance Joy
“And We Danced,” Macklemore and Ryan Lewis
“All of Me,” John Legend
Great work, lads!
This August, we're celebrating Gaeilge (the Irish language) and Irish music with a series highlighting those around the world speaking and learning Irish, and playing Irish music.
