The Famous Graffiti Wall At Bernard Shaw Pub Is Going To Be Knocked Down


In a sad moment for the creativity of Dublin city, it’s been reported that the famous graffiti wall at the back of Bernard Shaw pub on Richmond Street is to be demolished. 

The Journal reports that the wall, which was regularly used for popular graffiti jams by local and international artists, is to be knocked down as part of the redevelopment of the Tom Kelly flats.

This will include 260 apartments, retail units and a cinema.

In a statement on the Bernard Shaw website, they say that it’s “sad news to hear the wall of the back lane of our gaff for the graff is getting demolished. It’s worth noting we still have plenty of spaces and walls internal in our building for folks to use, practice on, etc etc. 

“For various reasons – mainly insurance unfortunately – we have had to limit these areas use over the years, but nonetheless they can still be used, and if you’d like to reach out about that, or would be interested in managing the spaces we have with us, please get in touch below. 

“We are actually on the look out for a curator and manager of our outdoor spaces, as we have been since 2006 when we opened. 

“We had Maser in here doing it for a while back in the day before he become an international man of mystery. Maybe some day he’ll come back to us.”

Here’s hoping there’s one last hurrah at the wall before it’s gone forever…
