Dublin city's walls are covered in street art and graffiti, from gorgeous creations á la Joe Caslin's Equality mural, to words and slogans we'd really rather not see scrawled in white paint on our commute home.

One such negative piece of graffiti is drawing attention today, but it's for a pretty lovely reason.

Syrian-Irish Psychology student Tamim Mobayed posted the images to his Twitter account this morning, after seeing them "on a friend's Facebook page," and they've been getting quite a reaction online.

"Love it – lightheartedly illuminating darkness in Dublin," Tamim wrote alongside the before-and-after images, the second of which shows the words "All Muslims are scum" altered to say "All Muslims are sound."

The photos have gotten quite a reaction online, with Dubliners praising the anonymous graffiti-fixer for altering the offensive slogan:

It's not a perfect solution to Ireland's ongoing racism problems of course, but we love the message behind it.

RTÉ's new show Drunk is a bit on the controversial side, as it offers free alcohol to contestants so that they can then be put through different tests to see the effects of the drug on our ability to function.

The results? Well, apparently scientists were amazed at how little twelve or thirteen standard units of alcohol affected contestants, causing concern at how tolerant we are becoming due to over indulgence.

Bill Malone, RTE Two Channel Controller said that "The first night we went filming, we supplied the alcohol. The Irish young people, all over 18 of course, drank 12 to 13 vodkas each and the majority of them were functioning completely normal on the tests.

"The medical professionals were astounded by the level of capacity in the young Irish people who were able to drink."

We're all for tolerance here at SHEmazing!, but not like this! If you're going out tonight, maybe set yourself a healthy limit of alcohol, you'll be glad of it in the morning!
