Bono and Sinead busking in Dublin

Bono maintained his Xmas ritual this year with a busking session in Dublin's Grafton Street on Christmas Eve.

This year Bono  accompanied by Glen Hansard of "Once" fame and singer Lisa Hannigan. Bono played to the gallery with a mix of traditional festive melodies and some U2 classics.

Sinead O'Connor also took Grafton Street by surprise with a rendition of her Prince-penned classic Nothing Compares to You.
