Pantibar on Capel Street, Dublin 1 with its newly erected sign in March

The Herald reports:

“…the Herald can reveal that a warning letter was issued by Dublin City Council (DCC) at the end of March following complaints to the city’s planning department suggesting that the sign contravened planning permission. A spokesperson confirmed that a warning was issued under Section 152 of the Planning Act and that the matter was being “actively pursued”.”

“When contacted by the Herald, Mr O’Neill declined to comment on the matter. The performer will now have a chance to argue his case with city planners but, if DCC rules that it does breach the bar’s planning permission, it is likely that it will have to be taken down. The costs incurred by DCC, if an enforcement order is issued, may also have to be covered by the Irish gay community’s icon.”

The site where you are supposed to give feedback is very confusing and non user friendly. I think these could transform the Dublin cycling experience and put you guys out business. Can you pass that onto them [DCC]? Ta.
