Cork's 96 FM decided to see if they could make Aoibhe's concert experience even better and they got in touch with Aiken Promotions who helped make her dream come true.
This is Aoibhe, she’s Corks biggest Ed Sheeran Fan. Her Dad John contacted @kcshowcork in the hope of meeting Ed last Friday night. With the help of @aikenpromotions her dream came true. We will find out how the big meeting went tomorrow morning after 8am on Corks 96FM ❤️ pic.twitter.com/EUVYM4cxww— Cork's 96FM (@Corks96FM) May 7, 2018
