Thousands attend a Northern Ireland solidarity rally in Dublin organised by Sinn Féin.

In a show of support for the people of Northern Ireland, thousands from all over Ireland assemble at St Stephen's Green in Dublin to march to the General Post Office where a public meeting is held.

The rally organisers are Sinn Fein (Kevin St). Those in attendance hold banners demanding the removal of the border, the release of republican prisoners and the withdrawal of all British troops from Northern Ireland.

Addressing the rally outside the GPO are chief of staff of the Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA) Seán Mac Stíofáin, Belfast brigade commander Joe Cahill, president of Sinn Féin Ruairí Ó Brádaigh and vice-president of Provisional Sinn Féin Dáithí Ó Conaill. There are a number of speakers from Northern Ireland, including Long Kesh prison camp escapee Francis McGuigan.
