The Rubberbandits inspired the creation of these hilarious county-specific banners for 'Together For Yes'

How does your county say ‘yes’?

REPEAL SUPPORTER, JEAN O’Brien has put a gas twist on the ‘Together for Yes’ campaign name and slogan.

It all started off when Limerick Repeal decided to mess around a bit with the slogan and change it to ‘Together for Yurt’ – ‘yurt’ being a limerick slang for ‘yes’ which  was popularized by the Rubberbandits – and made these awesome badges

Dubliner Jean wanted in on the colloquial slagging and created a facebook banner for Dublin repealers to use, as well as Limerick heads.

She was inspired to create more facebook banners that acknowledged the myriad of vernacular ways that Irish counties say ‘yes’.

For a small wee island, we certainly have a good few unique ways to affirm in the positive.

Jean reached out to the Oh My God What A Complete Aisling page for help with the local lingo, and these were some of the results:
