The above poster – all seventy foot of it – was recently erected on the side of a building in Dublin which hires itself out for functions/gigs etc. No doubt in an effort to secure free publicity for some upcoming event or other , the owners/promoters decided to try and ‘stir things up’ by using a controversial image in the hope of selling more tickets for whatever gig it is they’re trying to advertise. It seems that not everyone appreciated their efforts


Could we suggest that if the owners/promoters of said venue/gig wish to use an image of a British monarch to obtain free publicity for a planned event , they use an image which more properly represents the legacy which said monarch has visited on this isle , such as the following picture represents


it might not help with ticket sales but , as well as being more honest , it could save a few bob on poster repairs…..
(UPDATE : Radio station news reports have stated that the torn poster has been further damaged by at least two petrol bombs which were thrown at it. More information and , hopefully , a picture or two will follow if and when we receive same.)

    My enthusiastic applause to those who have undertaken to beautify Dublin and rid it of this eyesore. Those behind the effort to bring this English plague to Ireland should hang their whorish heads in shame.

  2. Hi Fitz !

    They have no shame – even to use any likeness of an English ‘royal’ to sell their product is offensive , regardless of the product involved .
    Thanks for your comment – much appreciated!
