Thousands of people turned out for a centenary parade through Dublin to mark the 100th anniversary of the Easter Rising.

The military parade was the largest ever staged in the Republic of Ireland, and featured a fly-past over the city centre by the Irish Air Corps.

The 1916 rebellion was an attempt to overthrow British rule in Ireland.
