Dubliners take time out from Christmas shopping to listen to traditional musicians on Henry Street.

Traditional musicians are doing their bit to raise funds for Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann, the main organisation in Ireland dedicated to promoting the music, song, dance and the language of Ireland.

The Irish Cultural Institute Cultúrlann na hÉireann was eventually established in 1976 in Monkstown, County Dublin.
