It looks like the flag of Palestine will be flown officially in Dublin.
The city council has agreed to hoist it above City Hall following a meeting of councillors last night.
It’s believed to be the first time a flag – other than an Irish or European one – will be flown over the building.
People Before Profit rep John Lyons proposed the idea in solidarity with the people of Palestine.
"It is a small, symbolic gesture of support and solidarity for those Palestinians living under a brutal occupation in the West Bank. And it is brutal, I've been over there and only got a taste of (what it's like.)"
But Councillor Ruairi McGinley is against it.
"My way of thinking is the only flag that should be flying over this building are the flags of Ireland and the EU."
