On the Late Late Show, Dermot Kennedy popped into the studio to talk about how busking gave him a unique view of the city, and perform a few tunes.
Kennedy talked about how his experiences on the streets of Dublin led him to support the Capuchin Day Centre for homeless people.
"It's almost as if you're part of the architecture," he said. "You stand in one place for the whole day and you see a lot of people every day who are struggling and the types of people who are in need of things like the Capuchin Day Centre."
"To know that there's something there that people can go to and there's no criteria to meet. As long as they're in need they'll be helped."
While there, Kennedy performed his songs Power Over Me, and All My Friends, and a cover of Van Morrison's Days Like This.
