Galway graffiti declares certain person ‘not welcome’ as picture says it all

A photo of graffiti in Galway has said a thousand words – by only using six of them.

The picture, taken at a location in the city centre, shows a six-word declaration that a certain figure is not welcome in Galway.

The photo shows a wall in the city with the words “Charles Windsor not welcome in Galway” as an activist group made their opinion known.

The graffiti was done by AIA (Anti Imperialist Action Ireland) who owned up to the act with their signature painted alongside it as the post gathered over a hundred likes.

AIA are a Socialist Republican organisation campaigning against British, EU and US Imperialism in Ireland.

The photo was shared on social media with the caption: “”Charles Windsor not welcome in Galway” @AIAIreland graffiti spotted in Galway.”

However, it seems that the group does not have to worry about the recently crowned monarch heading to the Emerald Isle this year.

Earlier this year, rumours swirled that the former Prince of Wales would be entering Irish land in the autumn, marking his first official visit down south since his coronation as King.

Some reports claimed the monarch was planning to head west in the autumn and would even be calling into Galway after enjoying a visit to the county with his wife Camilla some years ago.

However according to ‘numerous Government sources’, King Charles III will not be coming to Galway, or indeed anywhere in Ireland, anytime soon.

The British monarch was expected to visit the Republic in June for his first state visit since he was crowned but because of scheduling difficulties the date was pushed back.

Last month the Times reported that “numerous government sources” have confirmed that “there are no planned visits to Ireland for 2023”.
