Via Newstalk:

Gardaí are investigating after white paint was thrown on the marble bust on Guild Street at around 11pm last night – the sixth time it has been vandalised.

No arrests have been made in connection with the latest incident and gardaí say investigations are ongoing.

Meanwhile, the other statue of The Dubliners singer – located on South King Street, beside Stephen’s Green shopping centre – was also covered in white paint.

John writes:

Two statues being unveiled this week of Luke Kelly on the anniversary of this death. I’m particularly impressed with the Vera Klute sculpture. Love how striking the hair (made from 4mm patinated metal) is & she has captured his intensity perfectly….

Rob adds:

Does no one else think the new Luke Kelly statue looks like it’s destined to end up on a spike to ward off other Luke Kellys?

Ah here.

Stop that.
