A new Repeal The 8th mural has gone up in Dublin

The original was removed last week.

IT LIVES!

A new version of Maser’s Repeal The 8th mural has been in reinstalled in Dublin 8, on the walls of Amnesty International’s headquarters on Fleet Street.

The re-instalment is exactly the same as it was before, except for a change in colour from white and red to yellow and purple.

Painted by street artist Maser and commissioned by The Hunreal Issues, the piece features a large heart and the logo ‘Repeal the 8th’.

On the back of the re-installation, Colm encouraged people to donate to #TogetherForYes so that more ‘Yes’ posters can go up around the country.

The mural was removed from the walls of the Project Arts Centre for a second time just last week after the centre was informed that the piece was going against regulations put in place by the Charities Regulator.

Prior to this, the piece had been removed two years earlier due to a lengthy dispute with Dublin City Council Planning Department, who informed the artist and the centre that they were in violation of planning regulations

According to the Charities Regulator, the mural’s presence was deemed “inappropriate”, compromised the organisation’s charitable status and consequently jeopardised its funding.
