The Irish Times media outlet reported Saturday that hundreds of people came to the Belfast City Hall in order to partake in a rally against the march.
According to the news portal, participants of the counter-rally chanted anti-Nazi slogans and carried anti-racism and pro-migration banners.
On Saturday, about 100 people participated in the "UK Freedom March". The demonstration gathered together representatives of different movements including the Generation Identity that promoted right-wing ideas and opposed migration.
