This Swastika In A Window Near O'Connell Street Has Thankfully Been Removed
What the hell was this all about
It takes one idiot to ruin a city's good vibes.
And earlier this weekend, that idiot was spotted – displaying a swastika in a window facing on to a street just off O'Connell Street.
The response on Twitter was one of outrage

Report to business owner and cops, surely.— Cllr. John Lyons (@JohnLyonsPBPA) June 4, 2016
... followed by a response that varied between the moronic and the satirical
We contacted the guards to have the flag taken down immediately – because there is no room for this sort of bullshit in our capital city.
And thankfully, when we sent a reporter down earlier on today, the flag had disappeared
Back to normality, then.
But a worrying reminder that there's an ugly underbelly lurking within this city – and if this is anything to go by, they're not shy about publicising their views.
