Des Cahill saw a fan watching hurley during last night’s Ed Sheeran concert


Ed Sheeran kicked off his world tour in Croke Park last night to a massive crowd. But not everyone was paying attention according to RTÉ’s Des Cahill. 

The sports presenter explained that his daughter-in-law noticed the woman sitting in front of them was busy watching a hurley match on her phone instead of focusing on the concert. 

Finding the humour in someone going to Croke Park to watch a hurley match on their phone, Des took to social media sharing a photo of the incident and writing; “The woman sitting in front of my daughter-in-law at Ed Sheeran concert is watching the Hurling on her phone!!”

“That’s what Croke Park is for… watching Matches!! ”

“Great to meet my buddies . Ye made the night lads !! And as for Ed Sheeran ….we all thought he was fantastic !! Great night in Croke Park !”
