    a quick google reveals that he’s previously been up in court for tagging Darts with his mate.

    The sculptor was on with Joe yesterday and it will have to be removed and an ironworks will have to do some specialised cleaning on it to remove it.

    FYI: The rope was cast from the Garda tug of war teams rope and the model was a boxer.

      That’s bullshit. Sounds like a bunch of people just want to make some money out of so are making up the specialist cleaning line.

    just across the river human faeces and urine are a common feature day in, day out on the steps and forecourt of the custom house. Not a bother there.

    “Unnecessary” tagging. Like it!
    As if it’s sometimes necessary :)

    Graphic litter is all it is.

    Frankly, there is only one solution for dealing with those pricks who put Graffiti everywhere, if they are caught (note the if) they should be made clean it off by the courts. The more they have to clean the less inclined they’ll be to do it again.

      Or maybe tattoo their tag in a sore place…
      No, that’d be too mean. Your plan is better.

      Plenty of good street art about (DMC, C215, Omin Foes, Fink and many others). Brightens up the place. This tagging malarkey is shite though.

      I’m still waiting for someone to do something decent with the arse end of the Convention Centre – it’s crying out for a giant Ouroboros, or maybe Saturn devouring his son.

        Exactly what I was going to say. It’s like trying to compare someone drawing a cock’n’balls to Picasso, you could argue both are painting, but only one is art.
