How do you feel about rats? They wouldn't be the most loved creatures in the world would they? Disgusting disease ridden rodents would be a polite way of putting it. Well in Killarney there is an artist who is leaving graffiti images of rats all over walls, laneways and doorsteps in the town. These pictures are everywhere and some of the painted rats seem to be in conversation with each other, whihc weirdly manages to make the rats seem more endearing and likeable. The artist has not yet identified themselves but locals are calling him or her the Pied Piper of the town. A tribute to Banksy perhaps? Or even further back Blek Le Rat?
