More Irish street signs

Irish language street signs will soon be erected in Alexandra Place in the Foyle Road area of the city.

The move comes after an application was made by a local resident and questionnaires send out to other people living in the area to find their views on the matter.

24 questionnaires were sent out and eight completed forms were returned, with 100 per cent of those who responded in favour of the erection of the signs.

It is expected that the signs will be erected in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, an unsuccessful application was made to have Irish language street signs erected in Argyle Street in the Rosemount area. 77 questionnaires were sent out to local residents and 16 completed forms were returned. 38 per cent were in favour if Irish language street signs while 56 per cent opposed.
