Free Parking Likely for Youghal during Christmas Period

By Seamus Whelehan


Businesses and shoppers are expected to be given an early Christmas present shortly as Cork County Council say they are currently considering offering free parking over the Christmas period.
The initiative, which would see a two hour free parking period in Youghal, is likely to operate between Sunday 1 December and Tuesday 24 December.
East Cork Municipality, Executive officer, Joe McCarthy said if formal approval is received by Council, he hoped the offer would help encourage the public to shop local.
Historically, the policy has been applied from the 8 December until the 24 December.
On Saturday, 23 November the Harbour town will herald in the Festive Season in Market Square at 5:30pm.
