Cork City Council prints wrong Irish translation on sign

12th January 2012 | Warning Signs

Five signs in Cork have been taken down after the Irish name of the market was incorrectly printed.

Cork County Council failed to check the wording with its Irish officer, resulting in them reading Bearla sa Mhargadh – meaning 'English in the market'.

The signs cost €400 each and should have carried the lettering Margadh na Sacsan, according to Gael-Taca.

Chris Gorgan, communications and Irish officer at Cork County Council, told the Cork Independent: "The signs have since been removed for correction and will be reinstated at the earliest opportunity, and well in advance of the upcoming tourist season."

He also confirmed that no additional cost will be incurred by the council following the error.

Councillor Chris O'Leary told the news source that members of Cork City Council's Roads Committee have been left "red faced" over the mistake.

In December, the East Lothian Courier reported that lettering on the glass entrance to the new John Gray Centre was embarrassingly stuck on back-to-front.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801262396-ADNFCR
