Young people from diverse backgrounds have been meeting in Dublin to discuss ways to tackle racism.

The consultation was organised by the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission, ahead of a United Nations committee hearing later this year.

In November, the Commission will be independently reporting to the UN on Ireland's obligations to eliminate racial discrimination.

The contributions made at today's consultation will be part of that review.

The message of the day was that racism affects us all.

The young people gathered to talk about their experiences of racial discrimination, and their suggestions for making Ireland more inclusive.

Many said bigotry is not always overt.
