Stevie Wonder randomly called into a computer shop in Galway ahead of Rory McIlroy's wedding

As you do.

THE WESHT OF Ireland is the place to be this weekend with Rory McIlroy due to marry Erica Stoll in Ashford Castle in Cong, Co. Mayo this weekend.

As such, the area has become a hive of activity with high-profile names like Jamie Dornan, Niall Horan and Ed Sheeran all expected to be attending the nuptials.

The golfer has enlisted none other than Stevie Wonder to perform at his wedding because why the hell not? The singer flew into Ireland earlier this week and was spotted out and about in Galway yesterday.

So, what did he do? Take in some of the city’s glorious pubs? Take a whirl around the Salthill Prom with a Galway Girl?

Nope, he visited Compu B.

Sure, what else would he be doing?

Eoin Healy was working in the store at the time and told that his colleague was dealing with the singer, but didn’t cop immediately who she was dealing with.

I had just finished dealing with someone and these three guys and a girl came in and one guy asked my colleague what her name and said, ‘Lovely to meet you. This is Stevie, he’s after a few things.’
She was dealing with them, grabbing all the bits and they left for five minutes to go to the toilet in the pub next door.
And when they left I had to tell her, ‘Have you any idea who you’re dealing with? It’s Stevie f**king Wonder.’


When Stevie and his entourage returned, Healy asked for a photo and the singer kindly obliged.

He was lovely to talk to. Really genuine and asked everybody their names anytime anyone spoke to him.

As for what he bought?

He got like 2 or 3 sets of earphones

The high life.
