Officials of an Irish town have become an online hit after they issued signs urging people not to drop litter that had more than a hint of an Irish Mammy about them.
The Tidy Towns committee of Longford authorised the comical signs which asks the public to question themselves as to why they would drop litter.
The sign reads:
“Why are you littering?”
I don’t care about my town
Mammy still cleans up after me
All of the above
A photo of the sign was posted onto Reddit by a user named DangerBurger and it has created a lot of laughs and support.
Ireland is fiercely proud of its beautiful landscapes and countryside, and children are taught from a young age about the importance of recycling and protecting our planet.
There have been numerous government campaigns and the public have been politely warned they could be fined if caught littering.
However, the officials of Co Longford clearly think that a direct approach is the best way to get the message across.
It has certainly proven to be a popular strategy with online commentators. Many even suggested that the signs should be replicated and posted on billboards in Dublin.
