Two teenagers have been filmed going around Dublin city centre handing out wrapped presents to those in need.

The heart-warming video features one man who has been sleeping rough for two and a half years explain how he ended up there.

“I was married to an English girl – the marriage split up. I came back to my ma’s and my ma threw me out of the drink,” he told the teenagers.

Onlookers across the city were clearly taken aback as they saw the teens handing out the gifts with one builder even shouting “fair play to you lads”.

The boxes contained socks, hats and crisps.

This video was shot by Ben Kealy, Evan Orsmond and Josh Byrne. For more videos click here.
