Return to   Signs

Fógraí Fáil

Observed in Merrion St./Square , 2nd quarter 2006.


Even State signage at the highest level is not immune from lousy Irish.

The Irish language versions of the two signs above suffer from

bad grammar,
missing letters, and
spaces in words instead of between them.


The sign below is for the Restaurant
in the Millennium Wing of the National Gallery.

George Bernard Shaw,
who effectively financed much of the
Gallery's modernisation in the past,
would turn in his grave.
