Check out BLOC-TG4’s new love-bird travel series with, Éadaoin Fitzmaurice (Lovin’ Dublin) and TV personality, John Sharpson as they check out the by-roads and hidden gems of Ireland in their make-shift campervan. This week they hit Belfast for some fun and frolics.

At the Spire, on Dublin’s O’Connell Street.

Supporters of a #MeToo rally have been gathering since 12.30pm.

A Facebook post about the event states:

The feminist movement is calling a rally in response to the impact of the mistreatment of women in the justice system. This event is open to people of all genders affected by domestic and sexual violence.



In Belfast…

A similar rally is taking place.
