Marriage Equality mural must stay- Cllr Chris Andrews

22 April, 2015

Dublin Sinn Féin city councillor Chris Andrews has slammed Dublin City Council for issuing a letter to artist Joe Caslin stating that the mural in Dublin city centre must be removed due to a breach of planning regulations.

Speaking today Cllr Andrews said:

“This mural shouldn’t be removed. It is a piece of art and is an iconic image that represents the changing nature of society.

“I am disappointed that some of my fellow councillors appear to support the removal of this image. I would imagine that Dublin City Council would be better spending its time chasing down more serious breaches in planning.

“I have been in contact with the Chief Executive of Dublin City Council in relation to this matter and will seek to have the mural retained.”
