Election posters went up in the town of Westport in the early hours of this morning, despite a motion by sitting councillors in the District that Westport would ban election posters.

The urban area of Westport has banned election posters for many years

The decision by sitting councillors to retain the ban, is not legally binding – and election candidates by law can erect posters from midnight last night in both the local and European elections.

Independent councillor in Westport Christy Hyland told Midwest News that he is raising the matter with council officials as he says he’s disappointed that the ban in the town is not being respected.
