Visitors need more direction in Limerick City

Cllr Elena Secas

LABOUR Party councillor Elena Secas has suggested that place name and direction signs in Limerick City should be in languages other than Irish and English, such as French and German.

Speaking at a special meeting on the Wayfinding Strategy at County Hall earlier this week, Cllr Secas said that many visitors get lost in the city and don’t know where to go.

Fine Gael councillor Olivia O’Sullivan asked the Council to consider who signposts are targeted at. She said there would be a great demand locally for guide books in French and Spanish.

Senior Executive Engineer Olive Downes maintained it would be difficult to fit all this information on signage.

“We might add a QR code and the new signs will be map based for people to see where they are going,” she suggested.
