Council introduces free parking initiative

Motorists get one half hour of on street free parking in Letterkenny from today, with charges then kicking in after the first 30 minutes.

Last night, Letterkenny Town Council adopted its new parking by-laws, with notices to be published in the press outlining changes before the new laws can be implemented.

However, because the issue of parking charges is a matter solely for the town council, the free half hour can be implemented immediately, and that's what the council has decided to do.

The free parking does not apply to public car parks
