Last year's LGBTQ Pride Parade was a memorable day for Ireland to say the least, as Dublin threw a joyful and colourful celebration after saying YES to marriage equality.

This weekend is the one-year anniversary, and the festival promises to be even bigger. 

Not only will there be another massive parade through the city, finishing in Merrion Square, but there's plenty more events taking place before, during and after.

We've already had three days of opening parties, political debates and general madness – but here's what's left over the coming weekend days.
