This World Famous Irish Celebrity Is Spending A Lot Of Money This Christmas For Families In Need

One of Brendan O'Carroll's busiest times of the year is Christmas. There'll be a big portion of the country staring patiently at their screens over Christmas waiting for Mrs Brown and her family to make us laugh.

At Christmas time, O'Carroll gives many of us laughter and joy but he also provides something else for lots of other families.

The Irish Mirror has revealed that the world famous star donates over 2,000 Christmas dinners to families in need over the festive period.

The kind deed means that nearly 3,000 families will have a glorious Christmas dinner as vouchers for turkey and ham are distributed to those in need in Dublin, Wicklow and Kildare. 

“We do it for a family of seven and we do 2,750 of them," he told the online publication. 

“We did very well with the charity [Mrs Brown’s Boys] show this year - about €150,000 will be split between Childline, the Peter McVerry Trust and Saint Vincent De Paul. That was Sunday night’s show.

“We’re on our way in today to the Capuchins, we give them our donation every year. They’re a fantastic soup kitchen, and that’s it then.”

This wonderful gesture comes a day after Danny O'Donoghue of The Script admitted to going to Temple Street Hospital to sing songs and help hand out gifts.

It truly is the most wonderful time of the year.
