After a month of dates in Australia and New Zealand, Ed Sheeran is taking a month break and then launching a series of concerts in Ireland and the UK. The first and second of these are in Páirc Uí Chaoimh, in Cork in early May. Both concerts at this venue are destined to be epic.
Ed’s fondness for Ireland is well documented and you can hear the Irish influences in songs like Galway Girl and Nancy Mulligan. But did you know that Ed’s grandparents are Irish and that Nancy Mulligan is actually his granny?
In the video for his song Photograph, you can even see Ed paying the Irish bodhrán so don’t be surprised if he whips that out in Phoenix Parrk.
SO, Cork, are you ready for the craic?
