The signs were erected two years ago at a cost of €1200 to the Tidy Towns Assosication. According to the group the signs were mostly paid for by the group. Carrick Tidy Towns is made up of approximately 25 volunteers, half of whom are retired people, and the group rely on the generosity of local people for funds.
