Written by Steve Earle and originally released on his 2000 album Transcendental Blues, The Galway Girl featured the flawless musicianship of Irish national treasure Sharon Shannon. The song has become somewhat of an alternative national anthem and is as recognisably Irish as Guinness and Aran Sweaters. The track was re-recorded by Shannon and Mundy reaching number 1 in the Irish charts for 5 weeks in 2008. It became the highest selling single of the year.
Featured in 2007 Hollywood movie P.S. I Love You starring Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler.
