According to the Irish Examiner, Brendan thoughtfully gave 2,800 dinners to St Vincent De Paul and those meals will feed 2,800 families in Dublin, Kildare and Wicklow this festive season.

Many other celebrities recently have come together to help raise awareness of the homeless crisis in Ireland right now.

Glen Hansard, Kodaline, Hozier and many more are a part of Home Sweet Home, an organisation who aims to tackle homelessness in the country.

The musicians were joined by supporters recently and hosted a sing-song on top of the NAMA-owned and vacant Apollo House.

The empty building has over 60 rooms available in it and Home Sweet Home have illegally taken it over to provide shelter to the homeless this Christmas.

However, the Dublin City Council has given approval to allow the building to be demolished.
