Banksy's style of artwork is well-known and often-copied at this stage, but a new piece on Dublin's Moore St has gotten people very excited indeed today.

The artwork, which appeared on wooden hoarding overnight, is a nod to the 1916 Rising and the current dispute over the redevelopment of the Moore St area.

It shows Padraig Pearse "surrendering" two to developers dressed in high-vis jackets, and is signed with a distinctive Banksy signature.

Needless to say, people have been getting very excited over on Twitter:

However, according to Dublin street art king Will St Leger, the new piece is "99.9% likely" to be a fake.

Speaking to RTÉ, Will cited the piece's "amateur style and theme" along with the fact that Banksy no longer signs his work in that way, as two signs it's almost certainly a dupe.

Oh well. Maybe one day…
