Cheat!!!
Its got an award for being one of the least understood signs, we have them all over the place here in Kerry with a confusing mix of directions.
The article about the W must be for the tourists as we have no problem with the. W in whiskey.

Sad git award to me I afraid, just Googled it and I know what it is. I wont post the answer just yet.... :-\ ...sod it! oh yes I will...

Its the Wild Atlantic Way

The account I found says...
The Wild Atlantic Way winds its way along the coastline of Ireland through its green valleys and wild coastline. The zig zag lines indicate a constantly changing direction. In the case of Kerry, following the coastline along the west of Ireland and the Atlantic sea.

Edit.
just found an article saying locals don’t get it themselves because there is no W in Irish. Tourists know. Hungarians don’t know, no W either.
Sounds about right ::)

Slipway?


No, but it does sometimes have one of the letters N E W S on the sign. They appeared a few months back and nobody knew what they were but all has been revealed lately.

I think this sign belongs on the IOW, as the roads over there are as bumpy as this sign  :D

Basicallly it means:
Help to preserve the unique landscape by not building the stone piles ( Cairns)  Leave no trace of your visit.
 
Why it is in Galic is anyones guess, because it wont be the locals building the cairns it will be the tourist.
