Bilingual/Irish External Signage Scheme – A Quick Guide
Applying it to your business:

  • Includes new and replacement signage
  • Sample signage includes Shop-Front Signs; Signage on Business Vehicles; External Signs, etc
  • Ensure that use of English and Irish are on one single sign (as opposed to two separate signs).
  • This is best practice, more cost-effective, and does not require any further planning permission.
  • There is no need to translate the business brand name. The aim of this assistance is to enhance your current service/product brand through complementary use of Irish.
  • Ensure that all other text of the sign is translated to Irish. This is important in maximizing the effectiveness of bilingualism in making the sign stand out.
  • Both text in English and Irish should be the same size. Using different font styles and colours can enhance effectiveness of text.
