Dublin march in support of fathers' rights

A march of unmarried and separated fathers is taking place in Dublin this afternoon.

Advocacy group the Unmarried and Separated Fathers of Ireland (USFI) believes that the family law system in this country has failed them, particularly at Christmas time when many fathers don't get access to their children.

They'll march down Dame street and lay wreaths on the River Liffey to commemmorate their members who have passed away.
