#2 #3 I like the incorporation of the horseshoe. I know the celtic type font might be difficult to read on a sign, but I like how it is outlined with the color around the green

#5 #6 #10 I like the transition using the white D inside the clover and using the green fonts for the remainder. Clever use of the clover as the apostrophe. I also like the clover silhouette in #10

#99 #100 I like the green transition. Any way of giving me two more views combining the brown and green. Make the Donovans green and Irish cobbler brown and then switched

#133 We like your design but are concerned about if the lettering might be difficult to read as a lighted sign. Can you resubmit a version with all the gold a lighter shading (keeping the gradient) Thanks Jim
