The Templemore / Thurles Municipal District Council, have given notice (announced on November 25th 2020, @ 10:15am), that Free Parking is being made available to the general public for the three Saturdays only, prior to Christmas.

Same 3 Saturdays are listed, as follows: –

Saturday 12th December 2019.
Saturday 19th December 2019.

With regards to Thurles and Roscrea, free parking is restricted to only public car-parks. In Templemore Town, free parking will be permitted throughout the town.

According to Ms Janice Gardiner (Acting District Administrator, Templemore – Thurles Municipal District, Castle Avenue, Thurles, Co. Tipperary), quote, “This initiative is designed to promote local trade and to encourage support for Town Traders, during the festive season, so please shop local”.

If local traders are very good the Municipal District Council promise to turn on the Christmas lighting, after all the shops have closed for the evening.

Ho! Ho! Ho! – Merry Xmas.

    This is a joke, 3 Saturdays in lead up to Christmas. The state of Liberty Square with so called refurbishment has ensured that very little business will happen in the town.
    All parking should be free for the duration of these works if business is to survive. We now have covid pandemic and stupid pandemic to contend with in Thurles.
