I was waking down Camden Street in Dublin today when I came across this colourful and rather unique form of promotion for 4fm’s Gareth O’Callaghan.
This is not a billboard or a poster, but a branded tarpaulin, attached to the front of a derelict building, seemingly with the permission of the property owner, to hide the very ugly vandalised shell of a ground floor shop. The tarp has a notation on the bottom explaining that it is a temporary fixture.
Great way to get your message across, and perform a community service by masking a ruined structure at the same time . .
I wonder if we’ll see more of these?
Ah, Kingston Council.
When they’re not busy chopping down trees in public parks so that developers can get better views from their new apartments, they’re harassing local business.
The clip below is from the CCTV camera on the building next door to Radio Jackie, and shows the Royal Borough of Kingston (RBK) officials accompanied by police as they mount a daring raid on . . . a tiny advertising board.
They say it’s obstructing the pavement, despite being beside an area of pavement cafe.
