Tackling problems with Graffiti

My Council colleague, Cllr Joe Newman, raised the issue of problems with grafitti in the area. The Council have replied as follows:

The Operations Department works closely with the Probation Service who provide a scheme for the 4 Dublin Local Authorities for the removal of graffiti on public property. A list of locations, as reported or identified by Council staff or members of the public are provided to the Service and are actioned by them for removal. Graffiti on private property that fronts onto a public open space/public road is also included in this service pending the signing of a waiver by the property owner. A number of instances of graffiti at locations in Swords and surrounding areas have been cleaned by this service.
