The campaign was definitely a success as the Give Me Love singer made Triona’s wish come true by contacting the teenager today.
Sheeran spoke about his interaction with the teenager: "I managed to get in contact with Triona. It's so sad."
Orla Tinsley, Triona’s friend spoke of how much Triona loves Ed Sheernan and how much a chat with the singer would mean to her.
“Her brother told me she is not afraid.  Colm says she interrupts his guitar playing regularly to show him Ed Sheeran things. She loves music and acoustic guitar. 'It does something to my heart.'”
