Killybegs is Ireland’s largest fishing port located in the waters of Donegal Bay.
CS&WR is the Great Southern and Western Railway, who operated between Dublin and Cork and that general area, so the sign was probably originally on level crossing gates or something similar. I would guess that the householder has bought the sign at an antique auction.
I love the old sign and it is a lovely gate. Interesting to read John's comment above, too.
But a beautiful sign it is Bill.

That depends on who put it up but looking at how new the wall is I think it's a joke
Interesting sign. Would that be cash or credit card? :-)
Hey Bill, wel 'n heel mooi plek Bill, ik hou daar van.Groet kees.
And where should you pay the shillings and who has seen you? :)
I think John has solved the mystery of this sign! It's a great find, Bill! The new stone pillars and gates are very well constructed and the sign adds a touch of humour!
It's an interesting sign, probably indicating in a (funny friendly) way that they would like to keep the gate closed.
The sign fits the look of the gate, Bill.
...a fancy posted sign.
What a great sign! I love it.
I love it! This sign could be adapted for many things...like leaving the lights on in empty rooms, or leaving the toilet paper roll empty. LOL I could have these all over my house...I'd be rich if my family ever paid out!
That is a nice find!
It's a wonderful old sign, Bill!
Well spotted 😊
John's explanation makes sense!
Love it! A monetary penalty would certainly be a good motivator to help people remember to shut the gate!! Great capture.
I love the gate and the wall. The notice made me laugh!
The sign certainly makes us curious.
Here is a mystery for you to uncover.
It would have been an investment to make that sign. I suspect it wasn't a joke.
Sounds like they mean it to me Bill 😊
I believe they are serious!!
