Midnight deadline for election posters and cable ties to be taken down

Midnight deadline for election posters and cable ties to be taken down

It's hunting season for election posters.

The deadline for taking them down is midnight tonight - and that includes the cable ties used to hang them.

The clean-up may be complicated by Storm Dennis which is bringing heavy rain and strong winds across the country this weekend.

However offending candidates face fines of €150 under the Litter Pollution Act if they don't get their posters down in time.
