A major anti-racism protest in Dublin, planned for Monday, has been cancelled.
Thousands attended the Black Lives Matter demonstration in the city over the Bank Holiday weekend.
They began after George Floyd died in Minneapolis as a police officer knelt on his neck for several minutes.
While similar actions have been taking place across the United States for the past 9 days.

Concerns were raised about social distancing as photos appeared online.
However An Garda Síochána have raised safety concerns as well as potential criminal action.
While there is a possibility of rescheduling.
I’ve stood on College Green for almost 10 minutes and there’s no end in sight to the demonstrators. Organisers and Gardaí are reminding those taking part to adhere to social distancing guidelines. pic.twitter.com/jvaZV4WeoU
