Toilets for the Aliens

If aliens from outer space attack Youghal in Co Cork we know at least one building they won’t destroy. Odd looking characters featured on this sign for the public toilets near the beach.

    Looks to me like that sign points to the special ‘Size 0’ facilities, with the extra large bowls for more comfortable vomitting.

    Forgive this phonetic spelling but after 14 years of tuition on the language all I’ve got is “Ah will cad agum dul go dit amach on leithris” agus “Air aigh” or however you say “Pass!” as in “I don’t know the answer”. Shocking.

    Always wondered how people finished high school illiterate. Now I know.

    incredible sky in this picture… the high contrast black and white is stunning… it looks like it’s swallowing up the centre of the picture, which is perfect because that’s where the sign cuts across, beautiful composition
