A ceremony has taken place in Dublin this afternoon to mark National Day of Commemoration.
President Michael D Higgins and Taoiseach Leo Varadkar led the tributes to Irish men and women who have died in past wars at the Royal Hospital Kilmainham.
"It is hugely important to commemorate those who have lost their lives in the service over a number of years," said Colonel James O'Shea.
"You can see here in terms of the representation from the President, the Taoiseach, Judiciary, politicians and everyone in terms of the general public who have come here to support us on this day."
Thousands attended the multi-faith ceremony and military service at Kilmainham, including relatives of those who have died in conflicts like the 1916 Rising, or on active service with the UN.
The ceremony was followed by an Air Corps flyover.
