Hozier joined Bono and Glen Hansard for the traditional Christmas Eve busk on Grafton Street

It’s Christttmassss.

BONO AND GLEN Hansard are well used to their annual Christmas Eve sing along on Grafton Street.

But tonight they were joined by Hozier and a load of other Irish artists as well.

The crowd were expecting them early on:

And used any vantage point they could get to catch a glimpse

They started off with a version of Hozier’s Take Me To Church and followed it up with U2′s When Love Comes To Town.

And the crowd were loving it

Look at them there, giving it socks

The Script had a good view as they Periscoped the event live

And they were joining in at times too

There are two people you can count on for Christmas Eve

And it was a veritable A list of Irish musicians out there tonight

You just can’t beat Ireland at Christmas

It’s not Christmas without the Grafton Street busking session – all in aid of charity, of course.

And this year’s was better than ever <3
