Free parking to continue in Carlow town

Thirty minutes free parking in Carlow town is here to stay.

It was introduced on a trial basis 4 months ago on Tullow Street, Dublin Street, Kennedy Avenue, Potato Market and Castle Street but was due to finish up at the end of January.

However, following a review the council have decided to keep the initiative going.

Brian O’ Farrell of Carlow county chamber of commerce says its great news for businesses in the town.
