Unseasonable weather has battered the outdoor image which has begun peeling.

The mural, by artist Joe Caslin, appeared on George's Street in recent weeks as part of the 'Yes' campaign for the same sex marriage referendum in May.

The mural, entitled 'Our Nation's Son's, showed two men in an embrace and covered four storeys of a building.

It's understood it was made from biodegradable paper.

Last week, it emerged that Dublin City Council warned the parties involved that it might be taken down due to planning laws. This prompted some 44,000 people to sign a petition asking that the mural remain in place.

However, torrential rain and hail has wreaked havoc on the work which has started to peel.
