I'm seeing a new road sign recently

It seems to be in place of an 80 km/h limit sign on rural roads. IIRC it's a grey circle with some grey parallel lines running from 2 o'clock to 7 o'clock usually accompanied by a Slow/Go Mall plaque. I can't find it explained on-line.

Is it new or am I going mad?

I've seen a few of them appear in the last few months, it was introduced for those road users who couldn't understand that a 80km/h was a maximum & not a target especially on narrow roads & lanes where there's grass growing in the middle of the road

30 km/h slow zone included in new advice on speed limits - MerrionStreet

On the theme of signs. What are those 'N' plates in the windows of some cars..?
I thought it stood for 'Novice', but it appears to stand for 'I'm no longer a learner driver, so I may now act like a complete and utter bellend behind the wheel'

Well, that's the impression I get with some of the ones I see around here

I'm still waiting for the day they'll have a "Careful now!" sign officially introduced, it would be the most effective ever in Ireland

Normally, the people doing 80 on a "road with grass in the middle" (I know exactly the type - and wonder how the suspensions of anything less sturdy than a Defender cope with that) are also the self appointed speed marshalls, doing the equal 80 on the overtaking lane of motorways and dual carriageways...the "one speed fits all" people

Yes the one they rid of years ago here when they converted from mp/h to km/h. The amount of money they wasted back then with all the extra signs & galvanised pipe :HEADBANG:
