Earlier: Thousands of people are taking part in two opposing demonstrations in Dublin this afternoon.
Pro Life groups want to preserve the Eighth Amendment while the Pro Choice rally is calling for repeal.
These people were in attendance at the rallies:
"We're coming from Galway just to support the rally for life, we feel it's crucial that this country keeps it's abortion laws under control," one man said.
"We're holding a counter demonstration against the rally for life we're hoping to get a good few people to get good opposition," one woman said.
Meanwhile on Twitter, #knowyourrepealers and #RallyForLife are trending, where those who are not at the rallies, and some who are, are voicing their opinions.
Good luck to those at the #rallyforlife I'll be voting to retain the amendment when this completely unnecessary and divisive ref takes place— Luke Scully (@Scullybones029) July 1, 2017
