An estimated 3,000 people turned in Dublin yesterday for the annual Gay Pride parade.
The event marked the conclusion of the capital's 25th Pride Festival, which celebrates the progress made by the gay community in Ireland over the past quarter century.
The parade culminated in a rally at Dublin's civic offices which heard calls for full marriage rights for gay couples in Ireland.
A civil partnership bill is currently being finalised under which same sex couples will be able to avail of marriage-like benefits in a range of areas, but it will fall short of full marriage.
Tune in again tomorrow!!!
