Tens of thousands of people gathered in Dublin City today to celebrate the Pride Parade, the largest event of Pride Week.
The colourful parade started at 1pm and ran from the Garden of Remembrance to Merrion Square.
Google even provided a colourful outline of the parade for all Google Maps users to celebrate the event.
The theme of this year’s parade is “Rebel Rebel” honouring the events of 1916 and David Bowie.
Dublin City has turned into the colours of the rainbow to celebrate the event and promote LGBTQ equality.
While today’s parade is the highlight of the week there are parties, brunches and celebrations happening across the city today.
Capel Street is the centre of all parties from 2pm today with Pantibar and Nealons both hosting and DJ El Styra having a pop party nearby.
