National Day of Commemoration takes place at Dublin's Collins Barracks
President Michael D. Higgins and Taoiseach Leo Varadkar are among those attending the National Day of Commemoration service taking place at Collin Barracks in Dublin this morning.
The service honours all Irish men and women who died in past wars or on United Nations service.
It is held annually on the day closest to July 11, the date on which, in 1921, the Anglo-Irish Truce was agreed.
Other attendees of the service include Church leaders, members of Council of state, diplomatic corps, relatives of 1916 participants and a large number of Veterans' Organisations.
