Thousands marched through the Irish capital on Saturday, some singing the French national anthem, in solidarity with France after gun and bomb attacks in Paris killed nearly 130 people.
Many participants were draped in the French tricolour flag, some carried placards reading “Pray for Paris” and “Je Suis Paris”, and others sang “La Marseillaise”.
The French embassy gave an estimate of around 6,000 attendees.
The march was initially organised late Friday night on social media by Juliette Charton, 21, a French au pair from Paris living in Dublin, the Irish Independent newspaper reported.
“I organised this last night because it’s difficult to be in a different country and to hear about your family and friends who are still in danger in Paris,” the newspaper reported Charton as saying.
“They’re all very scared, they don’t want to come out or be in the street. I think it was a good way to give some support to them and to say that we are thinking about them, the victims and their families.”
The attacks late on Friday have triggered an outpouring of solidarity from European and other capitals, where vigils and rallies have been held and several landmarks lit up in the red, white and blue of the French flag.
French officials have said three teams carried out the attacks, and that a Syrian passport was found near the body of one of the seven assailants who died in the violence.
