Dingle busness owners seek permission to erect English signs

The Chairman of Cairdeas Idirnaisiunta Corca Dhuibhne says business owners in Dingle want permission to erect signs in English under the Irish sign for “An Daingean”. The Minister for Community Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs Eamon O Cuiv has ordered that the sign “Dingle” be replaced with the Irish equivalent. Tourism interests in the area feel this will confuse visitors. At last night’s Chamber Of Commerce meeting, it was decided to investigate the possibility of erecting an English sign under the Irish one. John Moriarty says the Minister has handled the situation badly and should have consulted with them first.
