It's just been announced that one of our faves, Ed Sheeran is set to play Croke Park this Summer on July 24th. Here's thirteen reasons why this is the absolute best news ever...

13. He chose Whelan's as his venue to play for VH1's Storytellers when he could have chosen anywhere in the world


12. His dad is Irish, he has an Irish tattoo and he even wore an Irish jersey at one of his gigs in the O2


11. Because of this amazing moment from the Late Late Toy Show

10. He went busking on Shop Street in Galway when he was 14


9. He's a massive fan of Love/Hate


8. Damien Rice is his hero

7. He's got signature Irish looks (and we've been known to claim him as our own the odd time!)


6. Because he's pals with one of our own red-haired singer/songwriters Gavin James


5. Because he loves his fans, and would do anything for them


4. Because he says his success is all thanks to his Irish cousin, Laura Sheeran


3. Because he dedicated a song to his granny at Vicar Street last May, (and we all love our nanas!)

2. Because he went on the absolute tear with some J1ers in Philadephia


1. And finally, because he's such a legend he's going to play to 82,000 fans in Dublin in the height of Summer (and not be a drama queen about it!)
