You may remember the news that we brought you a few days ago regarding the removal of Maser's Repeal the 8th mural that was visible on the side of Temple Bar's Project Arts Centre.

Project Arts Centre released a statement detailing their decision to remove the mural "after receiving a warning notice from Dublin City Council Planning Department that the work is in violation of the Planning & Development Acts."

Last night, Healy sent this tweet - which he has since deleted - which many people found to be insensitive.
