Teenage Irish busker donates all her earnings to help the homeless

A generous 16-year-old Irish busker has given all of her earnings to a homeless charity.

Molli Meaghan-Tresson spent much of her Christmas holidays singing and playing guitar around Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin.

The kind youngster has a fantastic voice and earned €750 during the festive period.

That is big money for a teenager but Molli decided she would rather give all of it to people less fortunate.

She has donated the entire sum to Dun Laoghaire Helping The Homeless, a charity that works with rough sleepers and aims to get them off the street.

The charity were thrilled with Molli’s generosity and posted a message about the young singer on their Facebook page.

They wrote: “Thanks to Molli’s donations we’ll be topping up on sleeping bags, tents and supplies that’ll help make rough sleepers’ lives a bit more comfortable.

“Well done Molli, you are an incredible young girl and a credit to your parents.”

Molli’s father Sean was with her for much of her time busking.

The proud dad said: “A big thank you to the people of Dun Laoghaire and the surrounding area who supported Molli Meaghan-Tresson in her efforts busking on the pier.

“It didn’t go the way she had planned due to weather and tonsillitis but she finished up with a total of just over €750.

“Every single cent she made while busking is going to be presented to Dun Laoghaire Helping The Homeless.

“They are an inspirational group from the Dun Laoghaire borough who are doing great work and we hope Molli’s efforts will give them a little help in their day to day charitable endeavours. Thank you all again.

“We’ve a great community and it was great to see such a supportive response from so many people.”
