Dublin could soon be hit with a blast from the past as its city councillors consider replacing the current blue and white street signs with signs resembling the old-school green ones.

As it currently stands, Dublin's signs are based on those designed for British motorways. Green Party councillor Ciaran Cuffe spoke to the Sunday Times about his proposal to replace the current signs with something a bit more distinctly Irish.

"I look back on the amazing, beautiful old signs we had in the 20th century, often written in green and yellow, and with beautiful, uniquely Irish typefaces," said Cuffe.

"The transport font came from the UK and it's a bit bland. You could be somewhere near Birmingham looking for the third exit, rather than Rathmines and Marino."

"This is an opportunity to look at something more uniquely Irish. It's to do with the identity of the city and the streets."

If Cuffe were to succeed in the proposal, we could see Dublin's street signs return to this green beauty on Sussex Street.

We're fully behind it!
