Marriage Equality mural defaced for second time - ten artists pledge to repaint

Ten artists have pledged to repaint a Marriage Equality mural which has been defaced for the second time.

The mural was erected by Dublin's Bernard Shaw pub and it is the second mural promoting marriage equality in the city to be defaced in as many weeks.

The first mural was the much-discussed mural on Saint George's Street of two men embracing, which was 'egged' shortly after it was completed.

One of the faces of the two women on the Bernard Shaw mural was blacked out with spray paint and now both faces have been blacked out and extra 'vote no' graffitti added.

Ten artists have reportedly pledged to 'keep repainting' the mural in the weeks coming up to the marriage referendum.
