Two women attempt to remove referendum poster in Limerick city

A still from the video which was posted on social media

TWO women were caught on video attempting to remove a referendum poster on the same street in Limerick, where a man was seen ripping down Repeal posters. 

The video, which was posted on a Facebook page – 2FairInfo – shows one woman pulling down a “Save The Eighth” poster and folding it over, in an effort to remove it from Thomas Street. 

In the video, the woman approaches the man taking the video, saying: “What the f*** are you filming, c***?”

When the woman walked away, she turned to the man again: “What are you filming?”

He replied: “No, it’s a public space, I am filming the street.”

The two women are then seen walking from the poster, which was not taken from the pole following the altercation.

On a Facebook post, 2FairInfo stated: “I am from the country where we never needed a feferendum [sic] to allow someone to make hard choices. If I could vote I would be only in support, but two things made me to do this. 1. Nobody should attempt to used deceipt to win. 2. A man from another camp was cought removing pro choice posters.

“I just wanted to show that this time it was a different camp that tried to remove the poster and that this time it were two ladies, and in adition [sic] one was violent and called me C word. Lets see how far this message will travel and would it be acknowedged [sic] by the local media as the other event did.”
