It features Annie's words from her last Radio 1 show: "Life goes by really, really fast. Life is short. It thunders by. If you like the music you gotta get up and dance, Just do it!."

No More Hotels is a campaign in the Irish capital to end the closure of nightlife spaces, named after an alarming trend of closing clubs and turning them into hotels.

The Irish DJ shared the mural on Instagram commenting on the campaign: "I’m so touched to see this in my hometown of Dublin."

"The club scene in Ireland was already struggling with its spaces being eradicated, and then the pandemic hit. Now, the Irish live events sector is absolutely on its knees, with no clear roadmap back."

"I hope that Ireland can get its nightlife back soon and when it does eventually come back, that the club scene comes back stronger than ever."

Annie left Radio 1 in July to concentrate on her writing career and family commitments, many in the music industry took to social media to pay tribute to her contributions to dance music.
