A series of vigils have been held across the country including in Co Clare in solidarity with Garda whistleblower Sgt Maurice McCabe.
Events were held in Ennis and Kilrush and took place outside the local Garda station.
The vigils were organised by the campaign group Uplift who believe whistleblowers provide an important public service and must be protected.
The group added that the vigils are also aimed at showing support for other members of the force.
Event organiser and Uplift spokeswoman Siobhán O Donoghue said: “These vigils are our way of standing in solidarity with Maurice McCabe, his family and all other Gardaí who want to speak out about wrongdoing.”
