The people of Galway may have been surprised by more appealing Election candidates gracing their streets, tied to poles around the city.

Galway has some high profile celebs appearing on election posters around the city

Irish icons such as Paul O’Connell, The Rubberbandits, Conor McGregor and of course Kanye West -because that man has to be involved in everything- had their own election posters, racking up support in The Tribesman county.

However supporters of these inspirational leaders and entertainers will be sad to hear their heroes will not be appearing on their ballot sheet as the posters were a highly creative joke by local pub An Pucán.

We are sorry to tell you Galway will just have to vote for the same old political faces as everyone else as Paul O’Connell, Conor McGregor and The Rubberbandits have not expressed any political interest in the General Election.

We cannot speak for Kanye West -although we are pretty sure he would not be allowed to run in Ireland even if he wanted to, so that should quell the fears some of you may have out there.

We think it is a major pity these Irish men are not running for election as according to their posters, they had some fairly cool election mandates.

Conor McGregor was looking to make suits compulsory, something the women of Ireland may agree with as there is something special about a suited and booted boy.

Paul O’Connell promised to "put the fear of God in the EU" which we have no doubt he would achieve without much trouble and The Rubberbandits wanted to remove the bag levy.

Well of course they did.

Regardless of who you are supporting, don’t forget to get out there and cast your vote tomorrow!
