It’s the first year that U2 singer Bono hasn’t been present for the Christmas tradition.

The Grammy-award winner busks on Grafton Street every Christmas Eve, but after falling off a bike in New York, Bono was unable to join the festivities this year.

In pictures uploaded by Twitter user Sean Earley, crowds can be seen enjoying the sing-song.

The singers belted out tunes like Hay Day.

Meanwhile Damien Rice sang his smash hit Blowers Daughter. The Irish star serenaded shoppers with his most popular songs.

The famous musicians have gathered together to support the Simon Community charity.
