A protest took place in Dublin over the visit to Ireland of US President Donald Trump.

Iran Press/ Europe: Demonstrators hoisted the "Trump Baby" inflatable blimp that has become a staple of rallies against him.

The rally of about 1,500 people was organized by the recently formed Stop Trump Ireland coalition of around 40 campaign groups.

Migrant rights, workers’ rights, women’s rights, peace, neutrality, equality, anti-racism, pro-Palestine — all-comers with all sorts of concerns were united in their opposition to US President.

Organizers said the protest was designed to show solidarity with those "damaged" by President Trump's policies.

Organizers received special permission from the Irish Aviation Authority to fly the blimp, which has been transported from the UK.

Trump is to spend his second night in a row at the Doonbeg golf resort in County Clare. 104
