There's not long to go until Ed-mania descends on Ireland. The singer will play nine gigs across the country next month.
Sheeran previously announced that Anne Marie and his pal Jamie Lawson would be opening his Irish concerts. Now, he's confirmed that Irish trad group Beoga will also perform at his dates in Cork, Belfast, Galway and Dublin from May 4th-19th.
Beoga previously co-wrote Ed's hits 'Galway Girl' and 'Nancy Mulligan'. They also joined him on stage at Glastonbury last year.
