A commemoration has been held in Dublin to mark the 95th anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising.
President Mary McAleese led the wreath-laying ceremony outside the GPO, attended by approximately 3,000 people.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny and the Justice Minister Alan Shatter were also in attendance, along with relatives of those who fought in 1916.
The Irish flag was lowered, the 1916 Proclamation was read, and a minute's silence was observed.
Traffic restrictions were in place in the city centre for a time, but they will be lifted shortly.
However there are restrictions around Croke Park, where the Allianz Football League finals are taking place this afternoon.
