All about po­si­tion­ing for ‘poster boys’ hop­ing to se­cure lo­cal vote


THE SIGHT of elec­tion posters across the Gar­den County is once again a fa­mil­iar one with less than a month left to go be­fore polling day.

Europe hope­ful Si­mon Har­ris TD didn’t miss a beat in cov­er­ing Wick­low and neigh­bour­ing coun­ties in­clud­ing Wex­ford with al­most a poster on ev­ery pole and where these quan­ti­ties are con­cerned it is not sur­pris­ing that at least one ended the wrong way up.

The fresh faced young­ster’s im­age ap­pears on a strik­ingly vast num­ber of posters across the re­gion so per­haps an upside down ver­sion was de­signed to shake things up a bit for pass­ing mo­torists on the Dublin Road on the out­skirts of Ark­low. Upside down or not Har­ris’ posters are placed well out of the reach of sneaky dogs in­clined to mark their ter­ri­tory but the same can­not be said for Fianna Fáil’s Kieran Hart­ley.

Also a can­di­date for Europe, Hart­ley might need to have a word with his team if they keep plac­ing his posters so low down on poles.

This one barely lasted a few days be­fore it went miss­ing but at this stage there is no in­di­ca­tion that any dogs were in­volved.
