Dublin's Project Arts Centre says it has taken the decision to remove a mural calling for repeal of the 8th Amendment.
In a statement, the theatre says it has reached the decision after receiving a warning notice from Dublin City Council Planning Department to say the work is in violation of planning rules.

The mural by artist Maser is part of a campaign calling on the Government to remove the law from our constitution, which gives an equal right to life of the unborn and a pregnant woman.
Project Arts Centre says it is removing the work in a bid to comply with regulations and not to censor artists.
"It is the first time Project has been presented with a planning notice for a painted artwork on the front of our current building," said Project Arts Centre Artistic Director, Cian O’Brien.
"Project Arts Centre is complying with the planning notice and has removed this artwork.
"We look forward to working through official channels with Maser and The HunReal Issues to explore the possibility of re-installing this work as soon as possible."
