Thanks Mark Shanley
Id be delighted if i was the graffiti artist
Dublin city council were pretty much owned after the first one of these when someone put up their own poster accusing them of incallcubale vandalism in building on wood quay
So clever, tell you what, if you’re so concerned about a vast wastage of public money why don’t you plonk there things on the buildings in NAMA?
€350,000 of TAXPAYERS money spent every year removing graffiti from the streets?
How about €30,000,000,000 spent on NAMA?
How about €65,000,000,000 poured into the banks (to keep them lending! LOL)?
How about €400,000,000,000 in contingent liabilities we’ve taken on board from the banks as part of the bank guarantee?
How about €36,000,000,000 of bondholders still to be paid back?
How about €18,000,000,000 spent servicing our debts last year alone?
How about the €3,100,000,000 promissory note due to be paid in March this year?
How about the estimated total cost of €80,000,000,000+ we’ll have to pay back to cover the losses of the IBRC over the next twenty years?
But nah, some eegit scrawling “Bono is a pox” on a wall somewhere, that’s the real scourge!
Cup of tea and a calm down for one ??
Why calm down about that?
Lock the doors and leave the place go shite, that’s your solution? Would you ever…..
quarter of a million a month to the Convention Centre for the next twenty years…and we own it…
the guided tour was coming this friday last week as well.
it is a lovely project though.
Whoever put up the grey paint over the original artwork of the Porche and BMW is a bigger pox.
They were there for years on Stephen Street Upper.
Yeah it’s a bit rough seeing decent drawings being painted over, that paint then being scrawled over and then the (admittedly quite clever) council counter response only addressing the ‘surface problem’ if you will.
I do hate shit graffiti though…..
…..but Bono IS a pox….
I’m so conflicted….
Reminds me of this:
Such desecration reminds me of this: http://laughingsquid.com/this-wall-used-to-have-art-on-it/
GAH! Beaten to it!
But Bono is a pox, isn’t he?
x a million
And then add another 1 on :)
I never got this, why is he? Whhhhhyyyyyy?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
I can understand the council view on this, lot’s of this “Graffiti” is just awful. Perhaps if we had a designated area as they do in some cities? And Rail line and trams are fair game. But seriously, some good graffiti would be nice.
I love these little signs.
Grafitti has existed since the cavemen. Can’t get why people dislike it that much to me it just seems natural. There’s always going to be more bad than good because being good takes years of practice. Most of the places get hit heavily are ugly or not directly visible so it’s usually an improvement.
Pretty sure that Pox’s taxes would easily cover the cost of removing the above grafitti….
lol €350,000 of TAXPAYERS money spent every year removing graffiti from the streets………….. how much of that came from Bono the pox ? :D
Not a lot considering he likes to dodge tax, hence why he’s being referred to as a pox.
This graffiti has an important message. Especially for foreigners and tourists not in the know regarding Bono’s poxiness.
Is he a pox or can he do the artist for libel…..
Bono is lovely, leave him alone will yas.
350K. Not that much when you know we spend 150K on Christmas cards.
These signs were the brainchild of an advertising agency. I wonder what their fee was.
stop removing it then
