A 40ft mural covering a Dublin city centre wall depicting former Anglo Irish boss David Drumm as a satanic figure has been ordered to be removed.
The graffiti street art covers the entire side of an old nightclub on Lower Ormond Quay. Dublin City Council have said that an order will be served to Nama under the Litter Pollution Act to remove it.
The mural also spreads onto the adjoining Yamamori restaurant, which is owned by Derek Ryan who commissioned the work, which was created by an anonymous artist.
The painting shows Mr Drumm as a horned devil, and again as a fire breathing dragon with a Celtic Tiger emerging from his chest.
It is nearly directly opposite Dublin’s Circuit Criminal Court where Mr Drumm will face two trials next year and in 2018.
Mr Ryan told the Sunday Independent: “There was not one single objection to the image. The country was disgusted with the banking crisis and the meaning behind it is the dragon slaying the tiger.
“If they remove it I will put something else in its place. I already have something in mind.”
3 former Anglo Irish bank executives behind a €7.2 billion fraud received prison terms on Friday after the longest criminal trial in Irish legal history.
