Council officials have also issued 550 warning notices to business owners that they risk having their sandwich boards seized. RAI chief executive Adrian Cummins, claimed enforcement of the scheme has been concentrated on the city centre rather than all parts of the local authority’s administrative area including suburbs, and appeared to be targeting restaurants, bars and cafés in particular.‘Dictatorship style’

“Dublin City Council has no interest in making Dublin a vibrant, café-style, tourist-friendly city,” he added. “The fees for sandwich boards is not good for the economy of the city”.
