    1. His family is Irish

    Ed may have been born in West Yorkshire in England, but his family hails from Ireland. His grandmother, Nancy, was born in Gorey, County Wexford, where she still lives today. Indeed, the song Nancy Mulligan from his album Divide is dedicated to her. Ed's cousin, Laura, meanwhile had the man himself as guest of honour at her wedding in Spiddal, County Galway.

    2. He knows the traditional music

    The always-smiling Ed loves traditional Irish music, but he’s not just an interested bystander. This music man plays the bodhrán, a type of Irish drum, in his video for Photograph. Irish folk band Beoga also features on his song Galway Girl – it was speculated that fiddler Niamh Dunne was the Galway girl herself, but she’s happily married to an Irish man, and is actually from Limerick!

    3 Ed showed the world just how much fun you can have on a night out in Galway in his video for Galway Girl. Want to follow in his footsteps? Why not check out the craic in O’Connell’s pub on Eyre Square where Ed played darts and met some interesting locals. Or take a stroll down Shop Street where buskers regularly entertain the passing crowds. Then finish the night with a pint at O’Connor’s pub in Salthill where Ed found himself joining in some Irish dancing. Now that's what we call a good night!

    4 Before the bright lights and stadium performances, Ed loved to go busking on Shop Street in the City of Tribes, Galway. He still loves to perform in Ireland – he returned to our shores for a super-intimate gig in Whelan's pub on Wexford Street in 2015, and then came back later in the year for four sold-out nights in Dublin's Croke Park. Ed may well have picked up some words in the Irish language on these trips… Just have a listen to his recording of hit Thinking Out Loud in Irish!

    5 At some of his shows Ed has been known to don a green GAA (Gaelic Athletic Association) jersey. Not only that but Ed – and his beloved shirt – were hard to miss when they appeared together in the film Bridget Jones’s Baby.
