Clare Election Candidates Urged Not To Erect Posters

General Election candidates have been asked not to erect posters in a host of Clare towns, during the ongoing election campaign.

On the second day of campaigning, posters are beginning to appear in increasing numbers on polls throughout the county, and a small number of community groups have taken to social media to encourage candidates to be conscious of the environment.

Requests have been made for candidates to not erect posters in seven towns and villages here, namely Ennis, Kilkee, Kilrush, Newmarket on Fergus, Corofin, Mountshannon, and Ballyvaughan.


The request does not amount to an outright ban on posters, but Ennis Tidy Towns Chairman Cormac McCarthy wants parties and candidates to take it seriously.
