PRO-LIFE ORGANISATION Youth Defence “had not applied for or received permission” to put up the anti-abortion posters which appeared in the vicinity of both Government Buildings and Leinster House in the last number of days.

A spokesperson from Dublin City Council confirmed to TheJournal.ie that the organisation, when contacted, had agreed to “remove all posters themselves.”

They have also “been advised of the protocols in place in the council regarding applications for postering in the city”, the spokesperson said.

The anti-abortion posters, which read “Enda; Don’t Open The Door To Abortion On Demand” and “Enda; All I Want For Christmas Is My Right To Life” had appeared on both Molesworth Street and Merrion Street in Dublin 2.
