'Come To The Table' is the message from an alliance of arts, human rights and community groups, who have come together under 'The Table Campaign' to demonstrate for peace in Northern Ireland and all party talks.

Over 200 people gather around a giant table on Dublin's O'Connell Bridge in a demonstration for peace. People are invited to come and sit around the table to discuss what form peace should take.

Reporter Cathy Milner speaks to writer and academic Theo Dorgan and musician Ronnie Drew. Theo Dorgan says that the image of the giant table brings home the need for a constant talk if peace is to be achieved. Ronnie Drew says that we need to strive for peace over violence, which is a positive thing.
