Many Irish pubs are rightly famed for their murals. This is the side wall of An Bóthar (The Road) Pub on the Gaeltacht (Irish speaking) Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry. The pub name on the sign is written in An Cló Gaelach, the traditional Irish script. I have some familiarity with Scottish Gaelic, having lived in the Scottish Highlands for a few years and worked with people from the Outer Hebrides and I made some effort to learn the language, so written Irish in modern text is often familiar to me also. However, the traditional Irish script can be difficult to read for a non-Irish speaker because it has now become so diversely stylised. I mistook the first letter of the second word for a 'D' and made an amadán beag of myself ( a little fool; it's just about the same in Scottish Gaelic) when inquiring why the pub was called An Dóthar.
I've since learned that this wonderful work of art no longer adorns the end wall of the pub, being replaced by a copy of a vintage advertisement for Guinness and the pub name in a modern, diluted version of An Cló Gaelach. Is mór an trua!
