photos from the mass rally outside the GPO on Saturday on our Facebook page.

For the record, our estimate of the numbers who took part are: 70,000 people on O’Connell Street and approx 100,000 who took part at one point or another in the march.
The speeches included powerful and well-received contributions from Siobhan O’Donoghue, Fintan O’Toole and Christy Moore among others.
Christy sang a song for Joe McNamara, about the only person who faces charges due to the banking crisis – he was the man who parked up his cement mixer outside the Dail when it returned after the summer recess.
