A national campaign called www.posterfree.ie has been launched, encouraging all Local and European Election candidates to go poster free, and it has successfully secured 101 poster free areas.

Several of those are in Carlow with Leighlinbridge and Rathvilly among those signed up to the campaign. 

The 101 poster free areas equates to over 11% of 2018 Tidy Town entrants.

Campaigners are calling for a national voluntary ban to ensure a poster free election.

It is a joint campaign by Séamus Maguire (Independent Donegal councillor) and David Weitbrecht (ZeroWaste.ie) encouraging all candidates to go poster free this May in both Local and European elections.
