Someone in this part of Wicklow really doesn't like Dick Roche, our local TD and Minister for European Affairs. Roche has erected a number of large, ground-level posters calling for a 'Yes' vote. On every one of these posters I've seen Roche's face has been cut away or painted over.

This protest seems somewhat sinister, but I'd like to think that this is just some 'No' campaigner's way of letting us know that Roche is the chief advocate for the faceless Eurocrats who control our lives.

UPDATE: I noticed last night that the Roche posters had been repaired. Some very enterprising individual has fixed new faces on all the damaged posters.
