Galway Democratic Republic?

Anyone know the origin of this plague which was erected at the Spanish Arch a few weeks ago? Mattie Hynes pointed it out to me and I went down and took a photo. Caitlin had a piece about it in Galway First. Nice headline Caitlin!

“The plaque also contains the Latin inscription “Ita erat quando hic adveni”, which, when translated means “It was that way when I got here”, as well as a line at the bottom claiming it was erected “in co-operation with the Society for Historical Interpretation, Trusteeship and Education”. When taken as an acronym, the line proclaims the plaque was erected in co-operation with S.H.I.T.E.”

The biggest mystery to hit the Spanish Arch since Buckfast Plaza.
