Council’s crackdown on illegal adverts

Eoghan Dalton Reports

The Waterford authority has been chasing down illegal and out-of-date advertising for events long past.
Councillors heard at the December plenary meeting that the out-of-date ads are the first thing many visitors to the city might see, as several are located at entrances to the city. “We still, for four or five years now, have out-of-date billboards from museums that are no longer there and marathons that have happened in 2013,” said Cllr Adam Wyse (FF). He wants a complete review carried of billboards, particularly at the city entrances.

Director of Services with the Council, Michael Quinn said that while it has been “chasing a number of illegal advertisements” around both the city and Dungarvan, it would be happy to do a formal review of the billboards. Photos shared on social media in recent months included adverts for the likes of Aer Southeast, which winded up several months ago.
