Watch Myles O'Reilly's beautifully shot 'Busking For Simon 2012' clip...
'Busking For Simon' – Bono and Glen Hansard's Christmas busking session – has quickly become one of Dublin's favourite new Christmas traditions of recent years.
Video maker Myles O'Reilly, aka Arbutus Yarns, was on hand on Christmas Eve as Bono and Glen Hansard were joined by Lisa Hannigan, Sinéad O’Connor, Liam Ó Maonlaí, Declan O’Rourke, Gavin Glass, Steve Wall and lots more for the Christmas celebration on a packed Grafton Street to raise money for homeless charities The Simon Community and the Peter McVerry Trust.
You can watch the video over on the Arbutus Yarns website.
Myles O'Reilly also interviewed members of the The Simon Community and Peter McVerry Trust to gain some insight into the charities and the work that goes on behind the scenes of the Christmas Eve busking event. You can watch that video below which was shot by Myles and Stephen Mogerley.
