    Default The things people stick on lampposts thread.

    Having recently completed my collection of eastern European egg cartons my better half suggested that I find a more "Sensible" hobby. I ask you!! Anyway, to keep her happy I have taken up photoing things that people stick or stencil onto lampposts, bins, postboxes, walls or whatever. Now I know you might find this hard to believe, but she is still not impressed.
    Women are a complete mystery no doubt about it.
    Anyway, if you see something interesting, funny or artistic on a lamppost where you are, post it here and share it with the world. Of course posting something here does not mean you agree with it, so don't be afraid to post far right sh*t. Forewarned is forearmed
    Stuff from anywhere in the world wellcome, maybe with a translation if necessary.

    I suggest not posting the all to frequent appeals for information about missing people. There is a missing persons thread and including them here among with some frivolous stuff may cause offence.


    SOOOOOOO HERE IT IS! In Dublin, Spring 2013 these are the.......

    Things people stick on lampposts.

    Never Forget:

    We have lots of Irish lampposts in Dublin

    And we have the occasional foreign lamppost:

    Éire Bocht= poor Ireland. But what has yer wan got to do with the price of chips?

    Like wtf?

    Not only do we apparently pay for African women's hair extensions, we also, it would appear, and this is gospel, according to the waiting list at the clinic, give brand new cars to newly arrived African men, have a fleet of taxis always at hand for Roma men, women and children who need to get to and from hospitals, (us Irish have wings), give a monthly pay-out of €30 to Polish people in order that they may follow up on their (I know I was surprised too) national custom of keeping a dog, and of course where would we be without the Travellers never ever paying their electricity bills, they apparently hand the newly arrived bill to the Community Welfare Officer who writes a cheque for same immediately. All Travellers get this! No questions asked.

    When I demonstrated with the people on the above I was then informed that Irish children could no longer get into schools because places had to be given to all of the above first, then the Irish would be given the dross. And the final kick in the ass for me was being told that I had no right to query their assertions on foreigners seeing as how I was one meself.

    Hi fluffy, that one is at the back of the Franciscan church on merchants quay. Cook Street I think it is called. That is Christchurch in the background and it is right outside the methadone clinic. Maybe they were trying to target people at a low point in their lives.

    No problem, they were all taken over the last two weeks and I will add location.

    All except this one taken today, East Wall Dublin 3.
    Full set of éirígí stickers.



    Blackhall place.
    That is the Solicitors HQ, on the left, formerly a hospital (the Kings Hospital). Designed by Thomas Ivory, not James Gandon as some Solicitors maintain. The Barristers HQ, called the Kings Inns is the Gandon building. Blackhall place named after Lord Mayor Sir Thomas Blackhall.


    Near Smithfield, someone took care over this piece of street art.



    Same area, not so much care.

    This is a fantastic thread, top class.
