200 more car park spaces on the way for Clonmel

The way has been cleared for a major expansion of parking in the heart of Clonmel.

Elected representatives have given the green light for works at the Suir Island car-park.

The current car-park has 71 spaces – this is to be increased to over 260 next year.

District Engineer Eamon Lonergan says it will tie in with existing and future plans for the town.
