Bring a little bit of Old Ireland into your home with a reproduction of the vintage Irish county road signs.
We have all 32 counties in stock, or can special order. If you are looking for custom wording, please call the shop.
The former "fingerpost" style of Irish directional signage can still be seen in many areas of rural Ireland. These signs differ from their modern day equivalent as they have black raised text on a white background. Destinations are in all caps (the placename in Irish was on top and in a smaller font than the one in English). Sometimes, the former route number ("T" for trunk road, "L" for link road) can be seen, and the former Bord Failte logo can be seen on some (they had responsibility for signage for a time), as well as occasionally a harp. Distances on these signs are in miles.
Each sign is produced individually. The sign is first cast in plaster. Then it is dipped in special hardener. Finally the sign is handpainted. Each sign measures 10.25" x 4.5 " inches.
