Powerful #IBelieveHer rallies took place all over Ireland today

Rallies were held in Dublin, Cork, Water, Galway and Belfast.

IN THE HOURS that followed the ‘not guilty’ verdicts in the Ulster Rugby rape trial, word landed that rallies would take place around the country the following day in response to the treatment of women within the justice system.

Here is a snapshot of the scenes taking place the length and breadth of Ireland today.
