Gardai are investigating a report of criminal damage involving graffiti on a Dublin city centre building.

Officers say it happened on Capel Street last night and no arrests have yet been made.

The news comes after Panti Bliss shared a photo of the Etsy building painted with a homophobic slur, with an arrow pointing towards nearby Panti Bar.

The graffiti was removed this afternoon.

Gardai have since revealed they are now investigating the incident.

Dublin City Council says it received a complaint this morning, and that in accordance with its policy, intended to remove the offensive material within 24 hours.

However the council says Dublin Town painted over it today, and DCC will return to complete the work tomorrow when the paint is dry.

 

Panti Bliss, aka Rory O' Neill, says it happened during the night.

Twitter users have expressed support and solidarity.

Pantibliss has tweeted to say the timing is ironic, saying: "Ironically, I'm sitting here now about to do an online Pride event."
