Sometimes the local signs and street furniture are the most obvious way to appreciate you are 'abroad'. Here is a collection of typically Irish signs, telephone boxes & curiosities.
This petrol pump is in the pub beer garden
Very steep gradient
This mixture takes some concentration to unravel
Another one not to be ignored
The roadside here at Castletownshend is attractively planted with flowers and shrubs; the motorist could be forgiven from being distracted from this 'sharp turn' sign!
Irish Telefon box and postbox at Clonakilty railway & model village
This telefon is in Castletownshend
Another example, this time in blue and white (re-branded to the corporate colours of Eircom)? This one is on the mountainous road between Glengarriff and Kenmare - in Milleens I think.
An unofficial notice from a Kenmare farmer!
