Mayor Welcomes Announcement Of Second Ed Sheeran Concert For Limerick

The Mayor of the city and county of Limerick, Cllr Daniel Butler, has welcomed the news that global music superstar Ed Sheeran will play a second night in Thomond Park Stadium next May.

Speaking this Saturday morning, the Mayor described the concerts as ‘priceless’ in terms of lifting the spirits of people post pandemic and a welcome economic boost  for Limerick and the Mid-West.

"Concerts like these provide a huge boost to the local economy in terms of bed-nights for hotels and B&B’s, restaurants, bars and shops and showcase Limerick as a world class destination for live events,” he said.

 

"Limerick already owns the May Bank Holiday weekend due to the Riverfest festivities.

 

With the addition of these two concerts, Limerick is set for a multi-million euro boost next May and hopefully this is just the start of announcements for the city in the live events and entertainment sector for Summer 2022.”

Tickets for the first Ed Sheeran date on Thursday, May 5 2022 in Thomond Park Stadium sold out within minutes with a second date added for Friday, May 6 this morning.
