Description

Mileage sign, c.1930, set into wall of building. Concrete with lettering and numbers in low relief, 'Shercock 8, Bailieboro 16, Cootehill 18, Cavan 34'. Letters in black on yellow background.

Appraisal

This is a rare example of a distance sign set into a wall. Although it is relatively innocuous it points to the early days of motoring in Ireland and also establishes connections between Carrickmacross and various towns in County Cavan.
