Around 100 people have taken part in a silent demonstration outside the US Embassy in Dublin in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and the ongoing protests in the US.
It comes amid growing tensions in the US over the death of an unarmed black man.
A video emerged earlier this week showing a police officer in Minneapolis kneeling on the neck of George Floyd, with Mr Floyd repeatedly saying he couldn't breathe.
The incident has sparked protests across the US, with curfews put in place in more than two dozen cities amid growing unrest.
Demonstrations are also being held this weekend in a number of cities outside the US.
In Dublin, two protests were held today - one outside the US Embassy in Ballsbridge, and another in the Phoenix Park to accommodate people living more than 5 km from the Embassy.

Speaking near the vigil in Dublin this afternoon, one woman explained: "It's not OK to hurt people or judge people because of their colour. It's not OK to be hateful to people.
"It's not OK to kneel on someone's neck in 2020, in the 21st century, just because of our colour. Where is the sense of justice?"
