The demonstration stretched for well over a kilometre through the streets of Dublin.

The Irish capital drew in a crowd of “up to 100,000” supporters for the All-Ireland Rally for Life on Saturday, according to Ireland's Sunday Independent.

The report goes on to observe that placard-waving marchers were 10 to 12 abreast at the front of the march as they arrived at Merrion Square, while marchers near the rear of the crowd were still leaving O'Connell Street. The demonstration stretched for well over a kilometre through the city.

Men, women and children marched together to communicate their desire for Ireland to retain the 8th Amendment to the Irish Constitution (Article 40.3.3,) in the run up to the referendum on the issue. The amendment “acknowledges the right to life of the unborn and, with due regard to the equal right to life of the mother, guarantees in its laws to respect, and as far as practicable, by its laws to defend and vindicate that right.”
