Residential nightmare

A DUNDALK man has said that his partner - who has mobility issues - is unable to access his home because “cheap motorists” are using the area as a car park.

A DUNDALK man has said that his partner - who has mobility issues - is unable to access his home because “cheap motorists” are using the area as a car park.

According to Brendan Moore from Pearse Park, the elderly and disabled are unable to get around the residential area with ease as increasing numbers of motorists are parking their cars on footpaths in the estate.

“There are a number of low level ramps in the area which makes it easy for cars to park there. It has gotten worse due to the price of parking,” he said.

“People are parking their cars here and then walking to work. They leave the cars here all day so it is becoming impossible for people in wheelchairs to get around.”

Brendan is calling on Dundalk Town Council (DTC) to issue resident-only parking permits to Pearse Park in a bid to solve the access issue.

“The council should put up signs saying that only residents can park in the area,” he said.
