European election posters belonging to a Fianna Fail candidate have been spotted in Northern Ireland

Cavan- Monaghan Fianna Fail TD Brendan Smith's team had put posters up in Fermanagh despite the politician running for election in the Midlands North-West region in the Republic in the upcoming European elections.

The Leitrim Observer reports Brendan Smith Number 1 posters were erected across the border in Belcoo, Derrylin and Garrison last week but were quickly taken down when the mistake was noticed.

His posters were noticed alongside Northern Ireland Local Election posters.

A Fianna Fail spokesman told the Leitrim Observer: "Posters were removed when the matter was brought to our attention."
