Trilingual Sign

Posted by
Bill (Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom) on 15 March 2016 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

A trilingual sign in Derry/Londonderry's Guild Hall. The sign is in English, Irish and Ulster Scots. You need to know something of the history of Northern Ireland to understand why the city has two names and three languages!

Consequently, I thought this image would be a good one for Silly Tuesday!

It is good that guide the important places is well maintained and in such a way that everyone can understand.

Very silly maybe - does language divide or ?

I'm seeing more and more signs in multiple languages. Here in Pennsylvania, USA, English and Spanish. I think it is a good trend.

Why not in Cymraeg? Surely there are some speakers there.

@Harry: We have enough problems here, Harry, without adding Welsh! Cymraeg is spoken on the other side of the Irish Sea in Wales.
