Hello there,
when I was younger, I spent half a year in Galway and since then I feel like it's my second home. I visit Ireland at least twice a year because I just miss the people and the lifestyle, like I was an Irish gal born in the wrong country.

But apart from that, I want a tattoo that kind of "connects" me to my favourite city. When I was in Galway I could totally relate to the song "Galway girl" (the original one, not the Ed Sheeran version), so I thought "why don't you get a Galway girl tattoo?". But since there's the Ed Sheeran song, I thought it would be better to have "Galway girl" translated into Irish.

Sooooo, what would "Galway girl" be in Irish? Just "Cailín na Gaillimhe"?

Greetings from Germany! :D
