People all over the country are gathering in support of the girl at the centre of the Belfast rugby rape trial this afternoon.

After nine weeks and two days of evidence, and three hours and 45 minutes of deliberation by the jury, four Irish men have been found not guilty of rape and other charges in a Belfast court.

Paddy Jackson, Stuart Olding, Blane McIlroy and Rory Harrison were acquitted on all charges.

People in Cork, Dublin, Limerick, Galway and more gathered this afternoon in support of the complainant of the trial saying that, despite the verdict, they believe her.






So far, another rally has been organised for this Saturday March 31 at 2pm outside Central Bank in Dublin.
