Thurles Town Council is to introduce free parking in its car parks around the town for the first four Saturdays in December in an effort to help stimulate trade.
The decision was made at the council’s November meetng this Monday following a request from a delegation from Thurles Traders Unite for one-hour free parking, or a minimum of 30 minutes, all-year round.
The council discussed the TTU’s requests after the delegation had left the chamber, and though they introduced free parking on December 3, 10, 17, 24, the current time restrictions will still apply.
