10 reasons Ed Sheeran should be made an honorary Irishman

One of us, one of us!

ED SHEERAN ANNOUNCED on Tubridy this morning that he would be playing Croke Park on July 24.

It seems like he hasn’t left since 2013, we should just give him an Irish passport at this stage.

1. He’s got a ginger beard

Never-mind the hair, the ginger beard is practically a pre-requisite for males when applying for Irish citizenship.

2. He’s got a classic Irish nanny

And he’s only mad about her.
