Graffiti Around Dublin – Valid Vandalism?

By Luke Gillis

Graffiti and other forms of vandalism have ramped up across Dublin for years now with notable places and statues getting defaced. 

There is, however, a different form of vandalism besides spray paint popping up around the streets that may have a more politically charged message behind them. This comes in the form of stickers.

Stickers that aim to spread the message of standing up to racism and becoming a fighter for LGBTQ+ rights. Other messages that are more on the left side of politics advocate welcoming refugees to Ireland and stopping evictions in Dublin.

Vulgarity is less common in stickers than they are on regular graffiti. This could be due to the extent of effort it took to produce these stickers so people can voice what they believe needs to be heard.
