Unlikely. 26 Years ago we met Monsieur French Bloke head on in the depths of the country. He and his buddies were ok but we weren't.

Actually it looked to me like a Cork county council sign.

That's pretty stupid, but it could be worse. They could have put the incorrect translation in Irish. :-/

Has anybody reported it to the local council, or the airport, or whoever's in charge?

Might be a good idea!
