50,000 people protest in Dublin against Irish cuts

An estimated 50,000 demonstrators have marched through the streets of Dublin to protest against Ireland's austerity measures.

Protest leaders said it was the first of many demonstrations over plans to raise taxes and cut public spending.

The austerity programme is designed to cut the Irish Republic's massive government deficit, exacerbated by the rescue of the country's banks.
