Photos from Belfast & Dublin Maydays

Mayday in Dublin was on the evening of May 1st while in Belfast it took place on Saturday May 4th.  I managed to get to both events with a camera, I wanted to get to the Belfast one in particualr to build up my library of stock photos from the north, and getting a load of northern union banners in a single day made sense.  Below is my write up of the Dublin Mayday march and photo slideshows of my better shots from Dublin & Belfast.

The long march on Farmleigh - Dublin EU summit protest Mayday 2004

In terms of the development of a libertarian movement in Ireland the march on the EU summit at Farmleigh will probably be seen as a turning point. For the first time the movement mobilized large number of people from outside its own ranks, in a demonstration that was in direct defiance of the Irish governments attempt to ban such demonstrations.
