ED Sheeran has said that his recent Irish tour gave him the chance to see Ireland properly for the first time.
The singer was still enjoying the afterglow of his nine concerts in Dublin, Cork, Galway and Belfast at his fundraising show for the London Irish Centre earlier this week.
Speaking to RTE Entertainment, he said: “It was really nice to get ’round and see the country properly.”
Sheeran said he was “honoured” to help the London Irish Centre by playing a fundraising show at the iconic Camden building on Tuesday night.
Thousands of fans donated £10 to enter a raffle to be in with a chance to win a ticket to see Sheeran perform at the centre’s Camden base.
The money raised will go towards a new capital campaign to set out a new vision for the centre.
