A cafe in Waterville Co. Kerry has caused a bit of a stir in America by banning “Loud American’s” [sic] from its premises.
The sign was erected outside Peter’s Place Cafe some weeks ago but has recently gone viral thanks to a picture uploaded to Twitter. The full sign reads “No Bus/Coach or Loud American’s. Thank You.”
Unsurprisingly the cafe is yet to officially respond to the matter and locals have been quick to distance themselves from the poster, with the Waterville Business Association planning to “celebrate their unique Waterville-American relationship” in response to the online reaction, according to Radio Kerry.
A pop quiz by the Irish Independent shows that while some online commentators may be making a bit of a fuss, many Americans on holiday in Ireland were happy to brush it off.
Ironically, the first translatantic telegraph cables stretched from Waterville to Newfoundland in 1866.
