Thank you for using Fix Your Street. Your query has been referred to the Local Litter Warden for the area to inspect. South Dublin County Council continues to remove illegal signage where presented throughout the County. Additionally, the Councils Litter Warden Service actively enforces the provisions of the Litter Pollution Act 1997, as amended, in relation to all illegal signage throughout the County. Regards. SDCC

South Dublin County Council cannot regulate the content of referendum posters. It is not within South Dublin County Council's statutory powers under the relevant legislation to remove referendum posters on the grounds of perceived offensive content.

Postering in the forthcoming referendum was eligible to commence from the 28th March 2018, the date the polling order was signed by the Minister.

Legislation requires that every poster having reference to a referendum or distributed for the purpose of furthering a particular result in a referendum must have printed on its face the name and address of the printer and of the publisher. The omission of the name and address of the printer and publisher is an offence. The instigation of prosecutions in this instance is a matter for An Garda Síochána.
