Taylor Swift’s eagerly anticipated new album, Midnights is now out with a reference to  Wicklow gaining more than a little traction in Ireland from her many Irish ‘Swifties.’

The 32-year-old US pop star recalls a holiday she and her beau Joe took to a Wicklow beach.

She spent some time in Ireland while Joe was filming the Sally Rooney series, as they were shooting mostly in Belfast and Dublin.

The penultimate track, Sweet Nothing, is co-written by Swift and William Bowery, the pseudonym of Alwyn, and describes a holiday to Co Wicklow in July 2021.

In the very first verse of the song, Taylor sings: “I spy with my little tired eye, tiny as a firefly, a pebble, that we picked up last July.

Down deep inside your pocket, we almost forgot it, does it ever miss Wicklow sometimes?
