Dublin’s street signs are about to change because they are ‘too bland’

by

It seems like we could be looking up at new street signs pretty soon.

Well, kinda.

According to The Sunday Times, Dublin City Councillors are talking about reverting the capital's street signs back to the traditional green versions.

So, they won't be necessarily new, but instead a fresh version of the old signage.

The newspaper claims that numerous councillors have called to replace Dublin's signs, as the modern blue version is "too bland."

Apparently, the font of the blue sign was created for Britain's motorway network back in the 1960s, and now councillors are calling out for something more bespoke.

Green Party Cllr, Ciaran Cuffe, said, "This is an opportunity to look at something more uniquely Irish. It's to do with the identity of the city and the streets."

We're all for going back to the traditional green.
