Dissident republicans paraded through Dublin's O'Connell St today at an event to mark the centenary of the Easter rising.

Wearing berets and with scarves pulled over the faces men in combat fatigues marched behind a lone piper.

The rally, organised by Republican Sinn Fein, left the Garden of Remembrance at 1.45pm this afternoon.

Members of the parade dressed in military dress, sunglasses - and some with faces covered - marched towards the Abbey Street junction.

The parade then made a U-turn right outside the GPO on O'Connell Street.

A significant gardai presence was at the event as traffic was diverted from the main thoroughfare.
