Check Out This Paddy Power Billboard Causing Outrage Outside The GPO This Morning

General Post Office Dublin 20060803

Commuters on O'Connell Street got a bit of a surprise this morning when walking by the GPO. This billboard attached to a lorry was parked right outside the General Post Office, where 99 years ago historic incidents occurred during the 1916 Rising.

11159511 10206855568892210 3978686481862795887 n

Using a phrase recognised as a slogan of the irish Republican movement which translates to 'Our day will come', the billboard is creating quite a stir amongst the 'Yes' side of the Marriage Equality Referendum.
