External Bilingual /Irish Signage Scheme - A Quick Guide

External Bilingual / Irish Business Signage - Applying it to your business:

  • Includes new and replacement signage
  • Sample signage includes Shop-Front Signs; Signage on Business Vehicles; External Directional 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 maximising 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.
  • Your designer / sign writer can contact Foras na Gaeilge for free help with Irish language text / translations.
