Dublin-based senator, Catherine Noone, has said that these controversial sandwich boards on the streets of Temple Bar should be banned.

The advertisements for what she describes as "sleazy strip clubs" do not sell Dublin in a positive light for tourists.

She told The Irish Mirror that:

“Every major capital city has an area where tourists congregate. In Dublin, Temple Bar is an area with a plethora of pubs and restaurants that attract people from all over the world who are visiting our shores."

“It is a place where people form their opinions about our country and is the epicentre of our hospitality industry.

“It has come to my attention that strip clubs in the area are advertising towards tourists and anyone else gathering there through men walking the streets of Temple Bar wearing sandwich boards advertising these strip clubs.

“These sandwich boards depict women in various stages of undress.

“These signs are degrading and sleazy.

“This needs to stop immediately."
