The Horseboy mural on Stirrup Lane in Dublin 7
A petition has been set up by artist collective Subset to save the ‘Horseboy’ mural on Stirrup Lane, off Church Street, in Dublin 7, from being removed by Dublin City Council.
An Bord Pleanála is set to rule on the case of a well-known mural in the Smithfield area after Dublin City Council found that it needs planning permission to remain in place.
The Horseboy mural is located just off Church Street in Dublin 7 and a warning letter had previously been issued in respect of it by the council.
The tenant at the house which has the mural on the side of it made an application to the council in June that the painting should be considered “exempted development” and allowed to remain.
A previous arrangement between the council and the tenant had designated it as an “exempted development”
….The conditions attached to that agreement outlined it would only apply for a period of 12 months, ending 1 April 2018, and that the applicant would have to commit to removing the artwork at the end of that permission.
A submission was then made by the owner – as opposed to the tenant – of the property in favour of the mural….
…Dublin City Council, however, found that the mural does require planning permission, and therefore it cannot be considered exempt under existing laws.
The need for planning permission for murals has been a thorn in the side of efforts to develop street art in Dublin in recent years.
