Taxi drivers have held a demonstration in cities across the country demanding greater supports from the Government due to the impact of Covid-19 on the sector.
Up to 1,500 drivers took part in the biggest demonstration in Dublin.
The protest has been organised by the sectors' four main unions representing tens of thousands of drivers.
Union leaders say members have been "overlooked during the pandemic", claiming that demand for taxis have dropped by 70%.
They are calling for a financial package be delivered by the Government to "get drivers back to work".
Drivers from counties Kerry, Kilkenny, Galway, and Cork have joined taxi drivers across the capital to highlight issues facing members.
