The same-sex marriage mural has been damaged by the weather

The mural on Dublin’s George’s Street has been affected by the changeable weather over the past few days.

THE MARRIAGE EQUALITY mural that has adorned the side of a building on Dublin’s George’s Street has become damaged.

Parts of the mural have peeled away due to the turbulent weather over the past few days.

‘The Claddagh Embrace’, by Irish artist Joe Caslin, went up earlier this month above Rick’s Burgers on the corner with Dame Street.

After the poster went up a complaint letter was sent to Dublin City Council saying that the image was a breach of planning as no permission had been sought to put it up and that it was on a listed building.

According to The George Bar’s Facebook page, the poster has started coming down due to the weather, with it saying:

Such a shame the mural has started to come down itself! No one took it down. It was made of biodegradable paper.
