A big Christmas tree in the city centre

The Focus Ireland Christmas tree is a symbol of hope to those without a safe and secure home this Christmas. During the festive season, our Christmas tree is proudly in place at the top of Grafton Street.  Each star is an incredible gift to families during the toughest of times. Since 2001, thousands of stars have helped raise funds for Focus Ireland's vital homelessness services. The panels around our tree displays the support of the business community, from multinationals to family-run businesses, in our fight to end homelessness.
