Tens of thousands of people attended Dublin's annual Pride Parade in the city centre, the first parade of its kind since the passing of the same-sex marriage referendum.

Organisers have said it was the biggest turnout in the history of the event.

The march was led by a float with a banner that read, "the future is equal", while many participants waved rainbow flags.

Others carried posters saying "Thank You" and "Yes", a reference to the historic referendum on 22 May.

The parade follows yesterday’s US Supreme Court ruling that same-sex marriage is a legal right in all 50 states.

"This year in particular we have so much to celebrate with the marriage referendum," Jason Flynn, chairman of Dublin Pride, told AFP.
