Outside Carrick-on-Suir is a junction known as Glenbower. Recently Tipperary county council erected two signs there indicating that the distance to Carrick is 8km; but the existing signage 50m closer to the town tells the traveller that it is 9km away.

Factory quotes over the weekend were a bit like the signage at Glenbower: on the one hand confusing as they raise and lower quotes from day to day as supplies fluctuate; and on the other the direction of travel is crystal-clear — downhill.
