Dublin: 16 °C Saturday 25 September, 2021

Hozier just joined Glen Hansard for a wonderful Christmas Eve singalong in Dublin to raise money for the homeless

Some crowds.

LAST YEAR’S TRADITIONAL Christmas Eve busk on Grafton Street had to be shut down early because of overcrowding.

Perhaps that’s why this year’s was planned for a proper stage outside the Gaiety Theatre.

Danny O’Reilly from The Coronas, Hozier and many others joined Glen Hansard and friends to raise money for Home Sweet Home – the organisation that campaigns to end homelessness in Ireland.

Here they are belting out Heyday for a packed audience this evening

The atmosphere on the ground seemed special – and the crowd were really getting into the performances

Given this year’s particular focus on the homelessness epidemic rising in Ireland, the scenes were heartening

Well done, everyone.
