The poppy debate is in the headlines again, ahead of Remembrance Day this Sunday.

A number of events are taking place this weekend to mark 100 years since the end of World War 1, while a 6 metre sculpture of a World War 1 soldier has been erected at St Stephen's Green in Dublin.

It's made entirely of scrap metal and will be on display until the end of the month.

These people who've come to see it, have mixed opinions on wearing a poppy:
