The controversial sign on the front of the SportsDirect shop on High Street, Kilkenny does not have planning permission.

Cllr David Fitzgerald confirmed that it is unauthorised and wants it removed immediately. Cllr Fitzgerald, the chairman of Kilkenny County Council explained that while the shop had permission for 'a' sign, the detail and type of sigh was to have been agreed beforehand with the local authority.

"That did not happen and this sign must be removed immediately," Cllr Fitzgerland said.
