Vicky Phelan’s daughter Amelia meets Ed Sheerhan backstage at Pairc Ui Chaoimh on Saturday night.

In fairness.

    Say what you will about his music, good or bad, there’s no denying he’s an all round sound bloke. Fair play.

      i’d say he’s certainly grateful in a can’t-quite-fupping-believe-it sort of way

    Is it not enough to just ask someone to marry you? Forcing a reply from the stage at Pairc Ui Chaoimh is not my idea of romantic.

      Maybe Ed Sheerling brings good luck according to some superstitions?

      I’m so glad I’m an old married woman now. Who would want something so hideous?

      Lots of people looking for their 15 minutes I guess, it’s one of the less attractive aspects of modern social media living.

    What a missed chance! A Korean-style mass engagement with fellas falling on their knees and girls oohing – except for the one who turns crisply with an “I don’t think so, Crispian”, leaving her would-be groom weeping before thousands.

    very very sad news about that poor girl who slid off the roof while trying to watch wish her well

    yea I think Sheeran gets a bad rap sometimes, not my kind of music but he’s very clever imo with all that looper gear of his..I think a lot of people misinterpret it as prerecorded or something false, not at all…to be able to hold a gig that size or like Glastonbury on his own is some feat!

    there’s a girl drummer on tour with Simple Minds who makes use of the loop gear to get some very tricky work done, check her out she’s excellent!

    Why doe anyone even want to ask someone to marry them in public let alone on a friggen stage in front of thousands? Tacky attention seeking doesn’t even begin to describe it.

        that’s not always all that matters, actually, “teresa”

        for example, if exploiting a vulnerable person in order to promote yourself made you happy, it still wouldn’t be ok

            What in the name of divine God are you on about? You’re obviously a very troubled delusional unhappy person Bro. Don’t you have anything else in your life other than mushrooms, a couple of cyber friends and loneliness?

            Jaysus Theresa .Stop being mean to broth Barn. he is a legend around here. not vey nice talk at all from you. behave

          3. Teresa

            The lack of capitals has just blown your cover there Barn. The sadness of the “legend” knows no bounds.

            that’s some effort you’re putting this, donal. and I thought you were just about easter eggs and self promotion.

            I have no idea what you’re on Ger but I’d suggest you see someone from the medical profession.

          Well I don’t think they have to even be vulnerable, just shy. I sometimes wish the girl would say no to those show off clowns.

            I suspect most of the girls enjoy it. Great story to tell the kids n all that kind of caper.
