He’s half Irish… (7/25)

Ed’s paternal grandparents are Irish, with his father coming from a very large Catholic family. The song “Nancy Mulligan” tells the colourful story of Ed’s Irish grandparents, William Sheeran, A Protestant from Northern Ireland, and Anne “Nancy” Mulligan, A Catholic from the Republic of Ireland. The song tells the story of how they met and fell in love during the Second World War. Apparently no one turned up to their wedding, and the ring was made from melted-down gold teeth which William stole from his dentist!
