Homeless Love/Hate Jesus raver sings with buskers on Grafton Street

Talent on the streets of Dublin.

TOMMY KD WAS part of Ireland’s biggest Twitter moment of 2014 when he appeared in the 26 October episode of Love/Hate.

Tommy played the Jesus-loving raver dancing with other recovering addicts in a sitting room.


Tommy KD (Kiernan Dunne) is homeless, and a recovering addict in real life. He’s from Ballymun and is a member of RADE, the Recovery through Art, Drama and Education programme in Dublin’s inner city.

It was through RADE that Love/Hate maker Stuart Carolan happened upon his talent.
