Iconic Dublin venue The George vandalised with homophobic graffiti

The bar was attacked on the morning of 20 May – the eve of the two year anniversary of the marriage equality referendum.

‘Fag bar’, ‘faggot bar’, ‘queers’, ‘fags out’ and ‘homo fag’ are among some of the words written on the venue, alongside a swastika.

Police in Ireland have confirmed they’re investigating the incident of ‘criminal damage’ but that no arrests have yet to be made.

“We’re not sure when it happened but it must have been early this morning,” staff at The George told the Irish Sun. “Whoever it was must have been quick because no one spotted them.

“It was distressing to see but thankfully we were able to clear it away with a few wipes.”

Locals in Dublin have since taken to social media and posted images of the venue to highlight that the vandalism has now been removed.

The George is yet to post a public comment on the attack on their social media sites. We will update this story as we learn more.
