Poll: Should public memorials be free from Pokémon Go?

A time and a place?

THE SUNDAY TIMES reports that a representative body for the Defence Forces says that the use of a Dublin memorial as a Pokéstop in the Pokémon Go game is ‘disrespectful’.

The memorial in question is the National Memorial in Merrion Square for those who have served in the Defence Forces.

It comes as other memorials such as the US holocaust museum asks players not to play Pokémon Go inside their building.

Are they right, should players stay away? Or are public places like Merrion Square public spaces for people to go about their own business?

Today’s poll, Should public memorials be free from Pokémon Go?


Poll Results:

Yes, there are other places to play. (4708)
No, it's a public place so people are free to play. (2353)
Pokémon Go should be banned. (1432)
Gotta catch 'em all. (646)
Don't know. (218)
