NEWCASTLE area Councillor Willie Clarke (Sinn Féin) has welcomed the installation of dual language street signs at Burrenreagh Road, Castlewellan.
Councillor Clarke said: “The erection of dual language street signs in the locality is something that should be welcomed and supported by all those who value and seek to promote the Irish language and the inclusion of Irish language street names in Burrenreagh will add to the cultural richness and history of the area.
“I want to pay tribute to the local people of Burrenreagh who campaign to have the Irish language included on their street sign and would encourage anyone else who wishes to have bilingual signage erected in their area to contact Down District Council and begin the process.”
