Free parking initiative on Tuesday afternoons approved

Free parking will be provided on Tuesday afternoons and every Saturday in the run-up to Christmas, it emerged from the latest Athlone Town Council meeting.


The decision comes hot on the heels of a new parking sub-committee set up to examine the issue of paid parking in the Athlone area, amid fears of an unfair playing pitch with free car parks and paid facilities in direct conflict.


Despite some disquiet from the executive and some members on Monday at the proposals being released to media prior to the meeting, it was agreed that parking will be free from 2pm on Tuesdays up until Christmas.

In addition, one further Saturday of free parking will be provided prior to festive season in addition to the three already agreed.
