Green light for bilingual street signs in the Bogside positive move -Logue

Sinn Féin Councillor Patricia Logue has welcomed the news that the green light has been given by the Council for erection of several new bilingual street signs in the Bogside. 

Councillor Logue said 

“I welcome the news that the green light has been given for the erection of new bilingual street signs at Cecilia’s Walk, Jacqueline Way and the Lone Moor Road. In recent weeks we have also seen the installation of new signage at West End Park.  

“The erection of dual language street signs in this locality is something that should be embraced and supported by all those who value and seek to promote the Irish language. The inclusion of Irish language street names in the Bogside will add to the cultural richness and history of the area. And provides an educational reference point for the local community and visitors. 

“I want to pay tribute to the local Martin McGuinness Cumann and the people of Bogside who campaigned to have the Irish language on a number of signs on key streets in the area. 

 “I would encourage anyone else who wishes to have bilingual signage erected in their area to contact Derry City and Strabane District Council and begin the process.”
