Recently Talk of the Town raised the matter of signposts around the town which had incorrect spellings on them.

In that instance it was Gyles’ Quay that was highlighted, although several more examples were forthcoming from the public via our Facebook page.

As it’s Seachtain na Gaeilge, local man Anthony O’Hagan decided to raise the matter of incorrect Irish spellings on local signage as well.

Anthony pointing out how the Irish spelling of Newry was wrong on several local signs.

He said: “Iúr Cinn Trá or An tIúr is the Irish name for Newry.

“Although there are some signposts with the proper name on them, and although some time ago there were a few with a capital letter L instead of a capital I…these photographs were taken yesterday.”
