Journalist Ken Foxe publishes a series of emails between Leslie Moore, the City Parks Superintendent for Dublin City Council and Paul Clegg, the executive manager for planning an property management at Dublin City Council – over the placing of a banner supporting Dublin GAA on the Ha’penny Bridge in Dublin 1.
Mr Foxe tweetz:

Joe Travers (in orange) and Paddy Fleming (hi-vis jacket) from J.S McCarthy Limited paint the Ha’Penny bridge with a new coat of white paint today.
They say that the bridge has not had a new lick of paint since 2004.
