Mundy - Among over 100 acts taking part

Clonmel's free Busking Festival continues this weekend, with all money donated going to Our Lady's Children's Hospital, Crumlin.

Over 100,000 people are expected in the Tipperary town this weekend, with Mundy, Bagatelle, Dublin City Ramblers, Louise Morrissey, John Blek & the Rats and Simon Casey among over 100 acts taking part.

In the past three years the festival has raised €50,000 for Our Lady's Children's Hospital.

The festival's co-founder Eelco Beckers, whose son Josh spent the first year of his life as a patient in the hospital, said: "You wouldn’t know he was ever ill and that's thanks to Our Lady's Hospital, Crumlin. We owe his life to the hospital and we want to give something back."
