Unpleasant graffiti changed to useful message in Strabane

A fine proclamation!

LAST MONTH, SOMEONE fixed some unpleasant graffiti on Tara Street in Dublin so that it proclaimed a much friendlier message.

Now, according to Twitter user Desmond_Funk, someone in Strabane (or indeed, the same person) has followed suit.  They’ve altered a message that previously read ‘Join the IRA’ to read ‘Join the library’.

An encouraging message, it must be said.
