Protests are being planned by the Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU) in six locations across the country on Saturday.
'Day of Action' protests against austerity measures will start at 1.30pm in Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Galway, Sligo and Waterford.
Unions including SIPTU, IMPACT and MANDATE amongst others are expected to attend.
According to reports in the Irish Independent and Irish Examiner, ICTU's assitant general secretary, Sally Anne Kinahan is also urging families to bring along their children, warning that austerity measures taken by the Government and the EU will also effect the lives of further and future generations to come.
The Irish Government is scheduled to make a payment of €3.1 billion off Irish bank debt by March 31, with annual payments to continue over the next decade.
The €64 billion in bank debt came from predominantly two Irish banking institutions, Anglo Irish Bank and Irish Nationwide.

The My Purple Chair title was born from my favourite place to sit and think about what's happening in the world. It's old but comfortable. So i suppose it's a bit like myself!
