Kilkenny County Council has unveiled new high-quality heritage street name signage in the core area of Kilkenny City. The signage was developed in consultation with Conservation, Planning, Elected Members and the Irish Language Commissioner.

The traditional design of the signage is sensitive to the medieval city, featuring the ‘Celtic Gaelige’ font, and matching seamlessly with existing heritage signage. It replaces the maroon and white street signage and will aid legibility and wayfinding for both visitors and locals alike.

“The new street name signage is an important addition to the City, providing an updated and cohesive look to the core area,” said the Mayor of Kilkenny Municipal District, Cllr. David Fitzgerald, “we worked closely with a range of stakeholders to ensure that the design was sensitive to the City’s heritage and would aid visitors and locals in finding their way around.”

The new signage will be an asset to the City, enhancing its aesthetic appeal and making it easier for both residents and visitors to navigate through the City Centre. Kilkenny County Council thanks all those who contributed to the consultation and design process.
