A Tipperary County Councillor has called for a car park to built for students at the Templemore Garda College.

Cllr Eddie Moran said it was imperative to build the car park after several prospective Gardai were forced to park illegally in the vicinity of the college.

Due to the lack of parking facilities, coupled with narrow residential roads surrounding the college, students were forced to park on footpaths, which resulted in several of them being ticketed.

Speaking on Tipp Today, the Templemore/Thurles Cllr said it was unfair for those enrolled at the college to be getting fined due to a lack of adequate parking in the area.
