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.
