Meanwhile, In Sligo



Spotted in Strandhill, Sligo.

“Whomever commissioned, created and installed this abomination plaque has some explaining to do. We have been assured there is no connection with the County Council. This is a private commission by someone who needs to sack his/her proofreader. Spelling apart, although I have no way of proving it, I’m fairly confident in saying Queen Maeve didn’t look like Barbie either.”

      agreed. and I would have put an oxford comma after “created”. haven’t you little to be worrying about?

    Apart from a rogue apostrophe, what’s wrong with it? Their, they’re there young Byrne, don’t be fretting.

      They have broken Yeats’ lines up into multiple lines.

      There are two spaces between each word.

      The tracking on the letters is very loose and they have not been kerned

      They’ve used a fake handwriting font as though it is Yeats’ signature.

      The joined up letters of Yeats’ fake signature are not joined up.

    Even worse, they forgot a word – ‘Angers that are like noisy clouds have set *our* hearts abeat’. Must have taken it from the abridged Yeats.
