Following the first show at Phoenix Park, he was apparently gifted with a Repeal jumper.


He’s probably waiting for the sun to go in to wear it though. It’s pretty warm.

Though he has yet to align himself with either side of the referendum debate as of yet, he did have a stern message for the Pro-Life campaign, who have been using his track ‘Small Bump’ without permission.

Sheeran wrote it about his friend who suffered a miscarriage while she was five months pregnant, telling Interview magazine in 2011:

Yeah … it was quite a difficult subject to tackle. I wrote it from their perspective. It was my perspective looking on them to begin with. It’s quite a touchy subject, so I wrote it from the perspective of actually being the parent.”

Taking to his Instagram story, the ‘Shape Of You’ singer said:

I’ve been informed that my song ‘Small Bump’ is being used to promote the Pro-Life campaign, and I feel it’s important to let you know I have not given approval for this use, and it does not reflect what the song’s about.”
