Lost kids safety wristbands to banned umbrellas - all you need to know if you’re heading to Ed Sheeran’s Irish concerts

Ed Sheeran will kick off his Irish tour in Cork’s Pairc Ui Chaoimh on Friday and it’s fair to say the rebel county has started sporting a hue of ginger instead of its standard red.

From lost kids safety to stage times, here’s all you need to know if you’re heading to any of his Irish gigs.

    -- The venue will open at 5pm on show days.

    -- Early queuing will not be permitted on the streets around the venue. The venue is located in a residential area and orgainisers have asked ticket holders to please respect the privacy of the residents and respect the local community.
