High turnout at #IBelieveHer rally in Galway City


Galwegians have protested in the city in solidarity with victims of sexual assault following yesterday’s verdict in the trial of Paddy Jackson, Stuart Olding, Blane McIlroy and Rory Harrison in Belfast.

Similar rallies are taking place in Cork, Derry, Carlow, Belfast, Dublin and Limerick.

All four men were found not guilty, however the the treatment of the complainant over the long high-profile trial has been heavilty criticised.

The North’s legal system which allows high-profile trials of this kind to be played out in public has also been criticised.
