the christmas busk

Hozier just joined Glen Hansard for a Christmas Eve singalong in Dublin

The event was held to raise money for the homeless.

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 weather also stayed dry and reasonably mild, thankfully, allowing a large crowd to gather on the pedestrianised street.
