Trinity College Dublin trivia??

A friend of mine took a tour of the campus recently and was told that part of the Regent House roof was repainted due to graffiti, possibly some sort of political message. He can't remember the details and google searching isn't turning up any info! Does anyone know the story behind this? Is it true, or just an anecdote made up by the guide?

Here's a picture of the repainted roof: www.flickr.com/photos/infomatique/6849056516/

(It's the light blue patch in the top left that isn't mirrored on the right).

Thanks!!!

Hi Brett, my own "contact" in Trinity tells me that he's never heard of such a story. I think the "light blue patch" is due to part of the roof having been re-tiled.

So this is very likely just an anecdote to amuse the visitors.

Or is it...?
