Thousands of people took to the streets of Dublin on Saturday calling for the liberalisation of Ireland’s abortion laws.
The demonstration began at the Garden of Remembrance at 2pm and progressed down O’Connell Street, before turning onto the quays and crossing over the Liffey. From there it proceeded up Pearse Street and towards the rally area in Merrion Square.
