The Union of Students in Ireland staged a rally outside the Dáil today.
They joined the Mental Health Reform to protest against the €12 million cut to the mental health services budget by acting Minister for Health, Leo Varadkar.
Concurrent rallies also took place in both Galway and Cork.
Welfare Officer of the Students Union in the Institute of Technology Tralee, Niamh Murtagh, was in Dublin today.
She says the rally was very effective.
