THE NATIONAL ROADS Authority has told TheJournal.ie that graffiti scrawled on hoardings at the N7 roadworks overnight will be removed immediately.
Head of Communications, Sean O’Neill, said the group were “shocked” to find the messages this morning and noted that the contractors, BAM, were dealing with the issue.
The messages and symbols were written on construction hoardings in place around roadworks on the N7 at Newlands Cross.
A guest at a nearby hotel said it was “not the best thing to wake up to on what was a great summer morning”.
The symbol is the same as the one seen with similar messages outside the Immigrant Council of Ireland offices and the Bank of Ireland on College Green in Dublin earlier this year.
It represents an encircled St Bridget’s Cross and is used by white supremacist groups across the country.
