Irish President Michael D Higgins and Taoiseach Leo Varadkar have led a ceremony to mark the anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin.
The ceremony took place outside the GPO in O’Connell Street at noon, and was attended by Tanaiste Micheal Martin, Sinn Fein leader Mary Lou McDonald and Sinn Fein vice president Michelle O’Neill.
Relatives of the Irish rebels who were in the GPO during the 1916 Rising were also present.
President Higgins then laid a wreath to commemorate those who died in the Irish rebellion, and a minute’s silence was observed.
The flag was then raised again before the national anthem, Amhran na bhFiann, was played by the Defence Forces brass and pipe band.
The ceremony concluded with an Air Corps flyover as the national anthem was playing.
Mr Martin, housing minister Darragh O’Brien, Ms McDonald and Ms O’Neill were also seen shaking hands with people as the event ended.
During the event, a man was removed from the area reserved for members of the public by several gardai.
Gardai said in a statement that a man was arrested for public order offences and has since been charged.
