Christmas in Dublin is made by moments like these.

The annual Christmas Eve busk for the homeless is a massive highlight on the Dublin festive calendar, and this year was no different with Glen Hansard, Imelda May, Bono, The Edge and more all turning up to perform.

A much quieter (but just as poignant) moment was captured separately at the top of Grafton St and is now being shared on Twitter.

The video shows Glen Hansard performing Raglan Road for retired Gaelic footballer Anton O'Toole, one of the great Dublin players of the 70s.

Just gorgeous.
