Pope Francis has paraded through the streets of Dublin as a busy first day of the Papal Visit continues.
After speaking to families at St. Mary’s Pro Cathedral on Marlborough Street, the Pontiff made his way down O'Connell Street to loud cheers before crossing the River Liffey.
The Popemobile then travelled along Westmoreland Street and Dame Street before dropping the Pope off at Capuchin Day Centre where he met with those affected by the homelessness crisis in Dublin.
