The issue was raised by Cllr Paul Ross following discussions with a number of members of Carrickboy Tidy Towns who said it had affected their points scoring in the 2018 Tidy Towns adjudication.

“The issue is that there are different types of signs on the different roads approaching the village,” said Cllr Ross.

“The heritage type is a very attractive sign and it would lead to a harmony of the sign types in the village.”

Area Engineer Paul Newell stated that he is anxious to support the tidy towns groups in every village and that he would replace the sign with a heritage type sign in early 2019.
