Dublin's Christmas lights

DublinTown switched on Dublin's Christmas lights at 5pm yesterday.

However, there is a new addition that people are less than impressed with.

At the top of Grafton Street, just outside the Stephen's Green Shopping Centre, there's a new light which reads 'Welcome To Grafton Quarter'.

People were quick to notice that this has replaced the more traditional 'Nollaig Shona Duit' decoration.

Disgruntled Twitter users took to the platform to share their feelings on Grafton Street's new name.

Some people took to Instagram to have their say.

Richard Guiney of DublinTown said of the sign and name change, 'The businesses on Grafton Street have been referring to the area as the Grafton Quarter for the refurbishment of the street that's been going on over the last number of years.'

'I think there's a move towards that as a district brand.'

A Twitter account using the handle @GraftonQuarter has been active since May 2014.
