Thousands of people came together for another ‘I Believe Her’ rally in Dublin.

People from all over the country came together to march to the Department of Justice building in Dublin, to show their support for sexual assault and rape victims around the world.

It comes in the wake of the Belfast rape trial verdict, which saw all four men acquitted.

Rugby stars Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding were at the centre of the trial, and now face an IRFU internal investigation, which will decide whether they will play for Ireland again.

After it was revealed Paddy is suing senator Aodhan O‚ÄôRiordain over a tweet, where he sided with the victim of the case, many today chanted “Sue me Paddy”.
