A number of posters have been placed on lampposts on the Hill of Howth in North County Dublin in recent days taking aim at cyclists.
The posters were placed on the south side of the climb between Howth Head and Sutton with messages such as ‘We own the road, don’t we,’ which shows two cyclists in front of cars which are driving five-abreast.
Other posters have the message: ‘It’s the hill of Howth, not the Tour de France. Slow down.’ and also ‘I look good in lycra’ which for reasons unknown shows two elephants on bikes wearing leotards ahead of a stream of cars taking up both sides of the road.
It’s unclear as to who placed the posters on the climb which is on a popular training route for Dublin cyclists. The climb is on a 10-kilometre lap around the Howth peninsula north of the city. It’s also unclear as to whether there was a particular incident which prompted the person or people to place these posters.
