A video filmed on Tuesday morning shows a man tearing down ‘Vote Yes’ posters despite being filmed and being asked why he was carrying out the act.
The footage was filmed by Kevin Kiely Jnr and was subsequently shared by Adrian Shanahan on Twitter.
It was filmed in Limerick City on Tuesday morning at around 9am and shows a “gentleman walking through town ripping repealthe8th posters off poles.”

When asked by the person filming why he was tearing the posters down, the man replied that it was none of his business.
The cameraman asked him did he “not agree about stopping the shaming of women in 2018?” to which the man did not reply.
He did however, ask the person to stop filming and even tries to grab the camera out of his hand but fails and is then caught on camera ripping down a poster which says “stop shaming women, vote yes”.
At the beginning of the video, you can briefly see the man ripping down the exact same poster just as filming starts.
