Irish Roadworks sign in County Louth

The Irish sign picture is similar to the UK sign. However, as is typical with Irish signs it uses a new world diamond with picture of person with shovel. Temporary signs in Ireland also appear in a darker shade of orange to the permanent signs, for example, as contrasted against the roundabout sign on the left.
