Mayo County Council remove cheeky road sign ahead of the All-Ireland Final
Mayo County Council has removed a cheeky road sign ahead of tomorrow's All-Ireland Final.
A mysterious Mayo supporter had erected a road sign in the county ahead of Saturdays All-Ireland football final with Tyrone. Mayo are bidding to bridge 70-year gap and bring the Sam Maguire trophy to the County for the first time since 1951.
Now just a couple of weeks after a fake road sign at the N5 roundabout in Castlebar pointing the way to Sam Maguire was removed by Mayo County Council, another one has been spotted less than a mile down the road.
The cheeky sign, which looks just like the real thing, informs motorists that it's 238km to Sam Maguire and also includes the score of Mayo's All-Ireland SFC semi-final win over Dublin. Mayo's All-Ireland final opponents Tyrone also features on the sign beside a sad face emoji.
The previous All-Ireland final-related road sign was removed because of the potential for it to cause confusion and compromise road safety. The identity of those responsible for erecting the sign remains unknown. A spokesperson for Mayo County Council said that ‘the signs are confusing motorists and therefore have to be removed’’.
