Music superstar Ed Sheeran has been spotted in Co Down taking in a round of golf ahead of his sold out concert in Belfast.

The Shape of You singer is set to perform at the Boucher Road Playing Fields in the city on Wednesday night, following three sold out performances in Cork over the Bank Holiday weekend.

With a few days off ahead of the Belfast show, it seems Ed decided the best way to relax was with a round of golf at Ardglass Gold Club in Co Down.

The club posted pictures of the singer on to its Facebook page on Tuesday, along with the caption: "Great guy and really good to have him come and play at Ardglass."



Sheeran will be supported on stage in Belfast by Co Antrim trad band Beoga on Wednesday night.

The five-piece previously performed with the star in front of 150,000 people during his headlining set at Glastonbury in 2017.

They also co-wrote his international hit Galway Girl, as well as Nancy Mulligan from Sheeran's album Divide.
