It is one year ago today since the start of the 50-day conflict in Israel which saw the destruction of thousands of buildings in Gaza - 12 months later the process of rebuilding these homes has not started and over 100,000 Palestinians remain homeless.
An art instillation called 'No More' on Dublin's Sandymount Strand remembers the 556 Palestinian children killed during the period.

Organisers, PalFest Ireland describe the piece as "556 white infant vests on uprights, representing the 556 Palestinian children whose lives were brutally cut short in Gaza last July."
During the air raids a number of well attended marches were held across Ireland, particularly in Dublin, and Palestinian flags were also flown at GAA grounds throughout the Championship.

2,251 Palestinians died during the air raids and 17 hospitals were destroyed in Gaza. 66 Israeli soldiers and seven civilians also lost their lives.
Israel and Egypt maintain tight border restrictions on Gaza, this has complicated the reconstruction efforts.
In last month's Newstalk documentary '8 Birthdays, 3 Wars' Chris Donoghue travelled to Gaza to report on life there in the wake of the conflict, the work of UNICEF, and the hopes and fears for the future of an 8-year-old Gazan who has already lived through 3 wars.
