Ahead of next week’s referendum on the 8th amendment, a huge NO sign has been erected on Ben Bulben mountain in Co Sligo.

The 100 foot sign, made out of plastic sheeting, was placed on the North facing side of the mountain, with the landowners permission, at 4 am this morning.

Tommy Banks is a  member of the Sligo for Life No Campaign - speaking with Ocean Fm , he said  people are outraged by the proposal to repeal the 8th amendment.

However there has been strong criticism of the sign locally, with many people saying it has defaced Sligo's iconic mountain.

Sligo County Council has confirmed that, since the land is commonage, they have no role in the matter.
