Ed Sheeran's 'Nancy Mulligan' is Another Song About His Grandparents On New Album 'Divide' - Listen Here!
But, did you know there’s another song about Ed‘s grandparents on the album? It’s called “Nancy Mulligan”.
“It’s about my grand and my grandfather actually,” Ed revealed. “One was Protestant and from Belfast and one was Catholic from southern Ireland.”
He continued about their love story, “They got engaged and no one turned up to the wedding. He melted all his gold teeth in his dental surgery and melted them down into a wedding ring. They wore borrowed clothes to get married and had this sort of Romeo and Juliet romance which is like the most romantic thing.”
“I thought I’d write a song about it and make it a jig.”
FYI: Ed is also pictured below performing for BBC’s One Show.
