Hozier has revealed his appearance at the 2fm Christmas Ball will be his last Irish gig for "at least a few years".

The Wicklow singer was speaking to Breakfast Republic when he admitted he'll be taking a break after 18 months of touring.

He said: "It'll actually be the last time I play Ireland for at least a couple years, I have to say.

"We have a show in Killarney that's sold out, but this will be the last time I play a gig in Ireland because I'm going to be taking a break."

When asked about a potential Croke Park gig, the chart-topper admitted he wasn't sure.

"I don't know, there's no plans for anything for the next little while."

The Take Me To Church singer said he "can't wait" to perform at the ball.
