Sheeran attends cousin’s Spiddal wedding


By Madeline O’Connor

Ed Sheeran attended his first cousin Laura Sheeran’s wedding in Spiddal in Galway at the weekend, where the entertainment included live music from Bell X1 and The Stunning.

Fellow musician and Galway native Laura, 26, got hitched to Bell X1’s keyboardist Mark Obell.

Laura, who is also a musician and has supported her famous relative in Galway’s Roisin Dubh, is frontwoman for synth outfit Nanu Nanu and also performs as ‘Glitterface’.

She has said of Ed: “We see each other quite a lot, any time he’s in town. I’ve seen how that whole world operates through him and it’s so intense, I really don’t know how people do it. I used to cross collaborate with Ed a lot before he was signed.”
