Anti-Muslim graffiti painted on a wall last week in Dublin, Ireland, was smartly corrected in a gesture of good will.

With a few deft brush strokes, someone amended the graffiti which initially read "ALL MUSLIMS ARE SCUM" to "ALL MUSLIMS ARE SOUND".

The message appeared on a wall near the Croke Park stadium after the terror attacks in Brussels, which killed at least 30 people.

Brian Whelan, deputy digital editor at Channel 4, posted a before and after photo of the graffiti on Twitter.

The images were shared widely across social media, earning 1,400 retweets and 1,600 "likes" at the time of writing.

Anti-Islam group Pegida, which was founded in Germany, clashed with counter-protesters during a rally in Dublin last February, while 100-300 protesters in Birmingham joined Britain's first Pegida demonstration.

In the wake of the 13 November Paris attacks, which killed 130 people, anti-Muslim crimes in London more than tripled, the Evening Standard reported.
