Housing activists have taken to the streets nationwide today with demonstrations aimed at highlighting the ongoing housing crisis.
Around 20 separate events have been taking place, with the biggest demonstration beginning at the Garden Of Remembrance.
More than 1,000 people are estimated to have gathered for the city centre protest.
Demonstrators marched down O'Connell Street and held a sit-down protest at O'Connell Bridge - leading to traffic disruption along the quays.
Protests are also being held today in Balbriggan, UCD, Tallaght, Blanchardstown, Finglas village and Crumlin.
Activists have occupied a vacant property in Crumlin for the next 24 hours to coincide with the 'day of action'.
The demonstrations come as the number of people in emergency accommodation lies just below 10,000.

It also follows the high-profile eviction at North Frederick Street last week.
The presence of masked gardaí at a demonstration to coincide with the eviction of activists who had been occupying the building provoked widespread concern and criticism.
Speaking ahead of today's 'national day of action', Aaron from Take Back the City says homelessness is an island-wide problem.
He explained: "I think the question of the housing crisis is something that is affecting us all directly or indirectly, and I think it's the issue of the day for most Irish people.
"Day by day there's an ineptitude by the Government to solve this crisis, and it's something that affects all of us."
He added: "We will raise awareness, and [are calling for] public housing being built on a mass scale."
