Anne Sheeran, grandmother to singer Ed Sheeran, died at a nursing home in the Republic of Ireland at age 92 on Tuesday.

Anne will be laid to rest on Wednesday after a funeral in St Patrick’s Church, Gorey, Daily Mail reports.

Nancy, as she was also called, was the inspiration behind Sheeran’s hit ‘Nancy Mulligan’, from his 2017 album ‘Divide’.

The story behind the song is about Ed Sheeran’s late grandfather, William Sheeran, from Belfast in Northern Ireland, and Nancy, a Catholic from the Republic of Ireland.

They fell in love during the Second World War and got married at the Wexford border.

“‘They got engaged and no one turned up at their wedding,” Ed Sheeran said.

Nancy and William went on to have eight children and 23 grandchildren.
