Hozier has shown his support for victims of domestic abuse at the Safe Summit conference that’s taking place at the Mansion House, Dublin today.

The Summit is the first of it’s kind to take place in Dublin, over the course of two days it will host 20 impressive speakers who will give their vision of how to make Ireland a safer place for women and children.

Hozier, who donated all proceeds from his hit song Cherry Wine to domestic violence charities around the world, was one of the main speakers at today’s event and he admitted that people don’t want to discuss domestic violence, despite the prevalence of the issue.

“My contribution is a meagre one, but it’s a contribution.” he said. “Domestic violence is not an attractive issue that people want to talk about. But it’s so common.”

He also went on to say that he doesn’t believe newly elected American president Donald Trump will do much to improve the problem of domestic violence.

“I don’t think domestic violence will be high up on his list…it’ll be an uphill struggle.” he said.

The Safe Summit is taking place across today and tomorrow in the Mansion House, Dublin and you can register for a ticket here.
