Bono and Glen Hansard Busking in Dublin on Christmas Eve

It has become something of a new Irish tradition. For the fourth year running, Bono, Glen Hansard  and friends took to the streets of Dublin — to  Grafton Street, to be precise — to spread holiday cheer and raise money for charity. Last year, the group performed a rousing version of the Mic Christopher song “Heyday” and “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home).” This year, they added “Silent Night” and a rendition of U2’s “Desire” to the mix.
