The legislation governing the placement of election posters is the Litter Pollution Act 1997 as amended by the Electoral (Amendment)(No.2) Act 2009.

The legislation provides that display of posters is only permitted from the date that the Order is made by the Minister appointing the polling day, or 30 days prior to the date of the poll, whichever is the shorter period.

The Order for the Local and European Elections was made on the 25th March 2019.  The display of election posters will be permitted from Wed 24th April 2019.

The legislation also states that all posters must be removed within 7 days of the polling day i.e. by midnight on 31st May 2019.

If posters are in place outside of these dates, fines can be issued by the Council (€150 per poster) under the Litter Pollution Act.
