On Christmas Eve it is tradition that some of Ireland’s finest musicians turn up to serenade shoppers on one of Ireland’s busiest high streets, Grafton Street.

This year was no exception, with stars such as Glen Hansard, Mundy and Hudson Taylor showing up to wow crowds.


Glen sang an impassioned rendition of Relevate.

Glen won an Oscar back in 2008 for his song Falling Slowly.

Band Hudson Taylor also took the time to perform.

They nailed their performance of their hit Christmas song How I Know It’s Christmas.

The busk happens annually, and is in aid of the Dublin Simon Community.


A number of Irish music makers also shared throwbacks to past years partaking in the busk.

On Twitter, The Script shared a video of their 2015 Grafton Street performance.

“Throwing back to Christmas Eve, 4 years ago… busking For The First Time on Grafton Street.”

In the final Gosscast episode of 2019, Goss.ie Founder Ali Ryan and Goss.ie Editor Kendra Becker talk through the biggest stories of the year.

From the Tristan Thompson and Jordyn Woods scandal to the Rebekah Vardy and Coleen Rooney drama, the girls are spilling all the tea. Take a listen:
