  1. A ghost sign is an old hand-painted advertising sign that has been preserved on a building for an extended period of time. These signs may be kept for its nostalgic appeal by the owner. Here, Burke’s Bar & Dining Room, Amiens Street, Dublin 1 is such a ghost sign which is preserved by its owner.I think it is worthwhile to record these as Ghost Signs, despite the fact that the businesses still operate in some shape or form.

    1. Thanks David – this is something that I’ve thought about a lot and I agree with you that there is a value in recording these signs whether the business moves premises or has closed down completely. Guineys on Talbot Street is another example of that.

      Is Burkes still operating elsewhere?
