Some very lucky folks were serenaded by Ed Sheeran in an intimate Whelan’s gig last night, ahead of his Croke Park performances.
Ed arrived in Dublin yesterday and 25 fans were invited to a small and secret party where they could listen to the Thinking Out Loud Star sing in a very intimate environment.

They were joined last night by forty other people in Whelan’s – all industry insiders – and it’s rumoured that Ed sang for a whole hour over schedule.
Among the gig-goers were RTE star Eoghan McDermott and his model girlfriend Jo Archbold, who seemed to definitely enjoy the show!
His two impending gigs in Croke Park have been completely sold out for weeks now, but the down-to-earth star made time for his most devout supporters at his live gig last night.
Ed has always been open about his love for Ireland and Whelan’s is one of his favourite places to perform.
