A lot of debate took place recently regarding the use of election posters and the possibility of banning them ahead of the upcoming Local and European elections in May.

There can be no bye-law implemented to ban the erection of election posters in towns before any upcoming election, it was explained this week at the Castlebar Muncipal District. Sinn Féin Cllr Joe McHale raised the issue at the December meeting of the Castlebar Muncipal District this week and he was told by the Cathaoirleach of the district Cllr Michael Kilcoyne, that he had received a letter from a council official, that a bye-law could not be implemented because national laws allowed for the erection of posters for a time period before any election and the removal of them seven days afterwards. Director of Services for Mayo County Council, John Condon told the meeting that while a bye-law could not be implemented, the candidates could agree between them not to put up posters and such agreements are in place in other towns and areas, but it is a voluntary decision to be made by individual candidates.

Mayo County Council's road safety officer has issued an appeal to those contesting the upcoming election when erecting election posters. Noel Gibbons said this week: "With high winds forecast over the next few days we have urged candidates not to hang banners and posters from road bridges and pedestrian bridges, as they could become loose, be interfered with by third parties, and could fall onto fast-moving traffic. Driver distraction has a negative impact on road safety and so only essential signage should appear.
