“My Irish heritage is something of which I’ve always been proud of, so this concert feels like a natural fit,” Ed Sheehan said." I love what the London Irish Centre Charity do in terms of being at the heart of championing Irish culture and community in London, and their plans are really exciting. I’m hoping that people like Dermot O’Leary, myself and others can help them get their voice heard. We’re all very excited about the summer 2018 show – this is going to be something very special. "
