Shoppers in Clonmel can avail of free car parking in town centre car parks today,
Wednesday, December 8th and on Saturday, December 11th.
"There is no place quite like Clonmel at Christmas time" said Clonmel Chamber of Commerce President Tina Mulhearne. "We see this as a great opportunity for shoppers to come into the town centre to support local businesses, which has always been important.However this year it is particularly important that we support them and avail of the fantastic array of shops that we have in this town", she added.
"The new shops such as DV8, River Island and The Book Nook sit perfectly with the longer established businesses. One thing that people continually say to me is that they feel that Clonmel is the best shopping town in Munster and I wouldn't disagree with anyone who says that", said Chamber of Commerce CEO Brian Cleary.
The free parking initiative on Wednesday and Saturday will operate in town centre car parks only. On street parking will still be charged at the normal rate.
