the sign was only put up recently along with the overhead signs for the new terminal,it wasnt painted over,it just wasnt scratched off as they probably realised the mistake.

It's not just the French that are being confused by Cork airport and getting them to drive on the wrong side of the road. Now they are trying to do the same trick to the Welsh, but in their own country.

It shold be pointed out that we are likely dealing with different "theys" in these cases.

I'm sure that them that did that in Cork are different to them that did that in Wales ;-)

Yes it's been changed...by pop rivetting a small sign saying gauche over the offending word.
So it stands as an obviously admended monument to someones inattenion in French lessons.

BTW a Swiss freind of mine works at the Airport Business Park and drives past the sign everyday. Never even noticed to I pointed it out.

i heard a similar story about a sign in wales tellin ppl not to turn left and in welsh not to turn right, but that was with a sign in welsh, a mistake which you'd think the guy puttin up the sign would spot when he was puttin it up, unless its a really subtle form of Apartheid

sorry dude, just spotted your post about the welsh sign after i posted about it... je m'escuse
