Last week, our nine-year old arrived home with the results of a maths test – 24 out of thirty.
When I looked at the paper, there were only two errors – one occurred twice; the other four times. Correcting the errors did not take too long when only two separate things had to be pointed out.
It reminded me of my own father’s mantra from years ago – if you are going to be wrong, be consistently wrong. On the basis that it is easier to correct the consistent wrong rather than the mixed wrong-and-right, I agree with the mantra.
On this basis, I think I prefer the sign at The Market Tavern, without any ‘síneadh fada’ to this at Dingle Distillery.
As the signwriter obviously knew how to include a ‘síneadh fada’, he must have intended not to include one in ‘Cead’.
Maybe the distillery issues permits for ‘thousand welcome’ with each bottle purchased.
