Dublin's long-running "north-side or south-side" row has burrowed its way into two different sets of flower beds.
A number of large plant pots have been placed at the top of the city's two busiest shopping streets - but there's anger that one set looks nicer than the other.
Dublin City Council installed the planters "to provide improved protection" for pedestrians, after a number of attacks on busy shopping streets in other European cities last year.
In a statement, Dublin City Council said that it did not have enough time to source similar planters for both streets.
The Henry Street models appear to be a rustic metal frame, while its Grafton Street equivalent has a neat wood finish.
"Unfortunately in the time-frame available we did not have enough similar planters for both locations", a statement from the council read.
Councillor Nial Ring has described the planters which protect pedestrians on Henry and Mary Streets as "an absolute eye-sore, rusty and not well put together".
He told 98FM News that "They look as if they've been strewn around the street, while the ones on Grafton Street have been neatly placed".
Councillor Ring has asked Dublin City Council to order new planters for the Henry Street area, which he understands is expected to happen.
The planters have been positioned so that cars or vans can't enter the streets at speed, and delivery vans have to slowly maneuver though them.
