Ireland's funniest signs
We asked. You delivered.
A great sign doesn't just provide information or direction. It brightens up your day in the most unexpected ways... and we asked you to submit your favourites.
Our search was prompted by the release of a book from Lonely Planet - 'Ultimate Signspotting', by travel writer Doug Lansky, which features funny signs from around the world.
"Seeing a funny sign in ‘in the wild’ is a bit like seeing a rainbow," as Lansky put it.
It got us thinking. Lonely Planet's signs - for all their Lost in Translation LOLs - are well and good. But a good Irish sign brings a whole new level of absurdity to the mix.
So we asked readers to email their funny Irish sign photos to firstname.lastname@example.org, or tweet us at @indo_travel_ for a chance to make the gallery.
Frankly, we could never have expected the avalanche of sheer signposting genius that followed. Lonely planet, eat your heart out... or send Mr. Lansky to Ireland!
The full gallery is above. Keep em' coming!
