Thousands of people have taken to the streets of Dublin for the 6th annual march for choice.

Demonstrators are calling for the 8th amendment to be scrapped completely.

It comes just days after the Taoiseach confirmed Ireland will vote in an abortion referendum next summer.

After the March the crowd heard a number of people speak about their experiences of abortion. musical performances and poetry readings.

Meanwhile a number of members of the Pro Life Campaign held an awareness event at the bottom of Grafton Street.
