IT’S BEEN A busy month for Ed Sheeran so far.

At the start of the year he dropped two new singles from his forthcoming album and last week he announced a European tour – including two dates in Dublin in April.

Today, he released his second video in a week for the banger that is Shape of You

It’s during this scene that a shot reveals all his colourful tattoos – which includes what looks like a signpost for Galway

Galway featured in his 2015 video for Photograph and his new album has a track called Galway Girl on it – so it’s not the greatest surprise that he’d have featured the city in tattoo form

Good man Ed.

Even more intriguingly, just above the Galway tattoo is another that looks to read “Mulligan’s”

The most obvious explanation for this is the song Nancy Mulligan – a bonus track on the new album. Or it could just be his favorite place to get a drop of Guinness when he’s in Dublin.
