Old Irish Road Signs - Kildare - Old Irish Road Signs is based in a village in Moone, Co. Kildare, something that I always wanted was some signs to put into my garden. They had become scarce and I had no hope of finding any and definitely not with the accurate mileage on them.
I had no option but to make my own, so I made 2 exact replicas of Moone and Castledermot signs and I then added the accurate mileage from my home.
The significance of these two road signs was that Castledermot is my home town and Moone is my wife’s home. It soon happened that there was an immediate reaction from people seeing my signs and I was soon making signs for many people. It started off at first locally, then nationally and now I am making and shipping them worldwide.
The signs are being used for decoration in many different areas such as, gardens, patios, homes, pubs, schools and businesses and they can be given as a gift for many different occasions. These signs have the added nostalgic attraction for people who actually remember the original old Irish road signs and every sign will mean something and most commonly it is a customer’s home town or a loved one’s home. They can also be historical or functional, and one has even been fictitious, and people receiving each sign always smile – and remember!
No one likes leaving home and the longer they are away, it seems the more they look for a nostalgic reminder or link to home.
