Thousands take part in 'March for Marriage'

Thousands of demonstrators have walked through Dublin City centre in support of same-sex marriage.

The Government is due hold a referendum on marriage equality in the first half of 2015.

However, the proposal has encountered strenuous opposition from groups, including the Catholic IONA Institute.

Today's annual 'March for Marriage' culminated outside the Department of Justice where a number of speakers took to the stage.
