Ed Sheeran could be on the verge of agreeing to a homecoming performance in Wexford town in the near future.

Wexford GAA is understood to have engaged in early discussions with Aiken Promotions about the possibility of an Ed Sheeran concert at Chadwicks Wexford Park.

The massive performance could help fund planned improvements at the stadium, which are costed at an estimated €2.5 million.

The possibility of such a spectacle has been made possible by the recent installation of floodlights at the stadium.


Ed Sheeran has well-documented Wexford connections, with his grandmother, Nancy Mulligan, hailing from Gorey. Sheeran also famously wore a Wexford jersey during his 2015 July Croke Park show.


Speaking to the Wexford People chairman of Wexford GAA Micheál Martin said: "Ed has expressed an interest in playing in Wexford previously and in terms of an outdoor venue with the appropriate services, I think Wexford Park would be a good fit."

Michael did go on to mention that matches are Wexford GAA's primary focus right now but concluded that they'd be "mad not to explore" an Ed Sheeran homecoming performance.


Logistically, however, it would be difficult to stage a homecoming Ed Sheeran gig this summer given that the chart-topper's upcoming 2023 tour is based in North America.

So, what do you reckon, lads? Will we be seeing Ed in Wexford for the summer of 2024?
