In defence of the apostrophe

The Apostrophe Protection Society has criticised those responsible for the ‘Frans Crash Repairs’ advert on a giant advertising billboard on the N8 (near the Portlaoise bypass.) Chairman John Richards said, “It is inexcusable, largely because I assume it was produced by a professional sign-writer who didn’t know his job. It is unacceptable because nobody bothered to check the accuracy of the sign.”
