‘Our heroes deserve to have their names remembered correctly on local signage’ – Cllr Tony Black

Published 1 year ago 13th September 2021 by Jamie O’Flaherty

Sinn Féin Councillor Tony Black is calling on Tipperary County Council to replace local signage that has Irish language errors. A number of place name signs in Tipperary Town estates have the feminine Irish language prefix, Uí, instead of the male prefix, Ó, before a number of surnames, according to Cllr Black. 

He says that estates such as John O’Leary Place, James Connolly Park and Martin Breen Terrace all have such errors on their place name signs.

“While it is great that our heroes are honoured by having local areas named after them, I would call on the local authority to replace a number of the signs that have Irish language errors. I was contacted by local Irish language enthusiasts who highlighted the mistakes. It is obviously just an oversight from the local authority but I feel it is important that the Irish language is used correctly on signs in public places. I also feel that our patriots who fought and died for Ireland deserve to have their names displayed correctly on local signs, especially in their native language.”
