Sounds like our elected representatives and the judicial system.

Gosh I wonder who took Carysfort Road. There was something on the radio yesterday about things for sale in an auction room. The fellow said that if anyone came in with a road sign he had to ring the Council involved as they remain the property of the Council. There is a big market in the States for signs of all kind...Irish pubs and the like.

Just thinking Micheál as part of heritage Week you could do a walk around the town pointing out the signs and maybe instilling some pride into the locals. Maybe I said!!!

Micheál:

Because of your efforts I now look at sinage, on Church Road BALLYBRACK the sign is black on a white background. Is this unusual? I am seeing more and more of signs with a blue background.

Never mind the bike, I see Seamus Cannon has done a great piece on Dún Laoghaire signage in the latest Dún Laoghaire Borough Historical Society Journal. Much more expansive than my narrow 'mustard' lot.
