Several hundred people have taken part in a demonstration in Dublin calling for a left-wing government.

The protest - organised by People Before Profit and others - heard calls to stop what they described as the "Fianna Fáil-Fine Gael stitch up". 

PBP TD Bríd Smith told the crowd that a Fianna Fáil-Fine Gael coalition would not represent what she called the historic demand for change voted for in the election. 

The march was also supported by Rise, Solidarity and various activist groups. 

They gathered at the Garden of Remembrance and then walked to the Spire for more speeches.
