Liam Gallagher has partnered with a Dublin homeless charity ahead of his shows here

Inner City Helping Homeless has announced that it has partnered with Liam Gallagher ahead of the singer’s Dublin shows later this month.

In keeping with the former Oasis man’s signature fashion sense, the homeless charity is calling on people to donate their parkas, jackets or coats before he takes to the 3 Arena stage on November 23 and 24.

Those who do so will be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets to either gig as well as a meet and greet with Liam Gallagher himself.

The initiative is part of a UK and Ireland-wide scheme which Gallagher has set up in conjunction with a number of homeless charities, namely Shelter, Centre Point and Aberdeen Cyrenians in the UK, as well as ICHH here in Ireland. Along with Dublin, fans will also be able to donate jackets in cities such as Glasgow, Birmingham, London and Liverpool throughout Liam Gallagher’s tour.

Speaking about the partnership, Brian McLoughlin of ICHH told RTÉ that “Liam Gallagher and his team are fully aware of the homelessness crisis in Ireland and want to do their bit by encouraging fans to donate a coat to us in ICHH in return for entering a draw to win a meet-and-greet and two tickets to Liam’s shows at the end of the month.”

He added that “Winter has hit Ireland already with winter showers threatening the capital this week, so we are inundated with orders for warm clothes from the people we are assisting seven days a week on the streets of Dublin.”

Liam Gallagher kicked off his 2019 tour in Cardiff last night and will continue on to Birmingham, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Newcastle, Sheffield, Manchester and Liverpool before landing in Dublin next weekend.

If you fancy being in with a shout of winning tickets, you can donate your parka on November 23 or 24 at Inner City Helping Homeless HQ, which is located on Amiens Street in the city.
