More than a thousand people have taken part in a protest in Strokestown in County Roscommon.

The peaceful demonstration was organised in support of the local family recently evicted in controversial circumstances, from a family farm on the outskirts of the town.

Those attending today carried banners and tri-colours, calling for an end to forced evictions.

It follows violent clashes last week in the aftermath of the eviction.

Two men were arrested and later released following last week's disturbances - and a file is being prepared for the DPP.
