Bono and Glen Hansard go caroling in Dublin

Posted on

Dublin’s carolers beat your carolers, hands down. That’s because Dublin’s carolers this week included U2 frontman Bono and Glen Hansard of The Swell Season (Once). The famous Irishmen have been joining together on Christmas week to serenade fans on Grafton Street since 2009 to raise money for Simon Communities, a charity addressing homelessness in Ireland. This year,  fans were serenaded to “O Come All Ye Faithful,” “Merry Xmas Everybody,” and more favorites.

Check out some clips on YouTube and Instagram from some lucky carol-goers below:





Last year, the pair joined together for the popular U2 cover of “Christmas, Baby Please Come Home.” In previous outings, Sinead O’Connor and other famous countrymen and women have also joined in the fun.
