Colin Farrell Surprises Kids at Dublin Hospital with Christmas Gifts

Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes



Colin Farrell spent Christmas Day in a Dublin hospital — delivering more than 100 presents to sick kids at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin.

He arrived unannounced and without any fanfare to meet with the children.

The press and paparazzi were not alerted, nor would the hospital comment when Gossip Cop called. Even his own rep hadn’t been tipped off about his altruism.

Farrell simply visited the sick kids and showered them with gifts, all of out of the kindness of his heart.

Various relatives of the children, however, tweeted about Farrell’s visit.

One noted, “Just chatting with #ColinFarrell who is in with presents for the kids here in #Crumlin. No tv/media, a gentleman and genuine.”

Another tweeted, “Just met Colin Farrell he came to meet the kids in crumlin hospital really nice man. fair play to him putting a smile on the childrens faces.”

That same parent noted Farrell brought “the whole hospital… presents,” adding, “Farrell is a real genuine guy alright. ”

He’s all right in our book, too.
