For many Dubliners and across Ireland, telephone boxes are something on an eyesore.

Since the advent of mobile phones, they've become derelict and forgotten - attracting either vandalism, public urination or just about anti-social behaviour you can think of.

For urban planners, what's to be done with phone boxes is a real issue. Do they remove them? Or do they try to turn them to some better purpose?

However, at a local community arts festival in Phibsborough, Dublin, they've come up with a pretty ingenious way of turning them to some use.

Take a look.

With just a little bit of care and attention, they can be turned into something beautiful and useful.

Just don't let Colin Farrell take a call in it and you'll be grand.
