PARKING

 VERY IMPORTANT Parking Arrangements NOTICE 

The owners of St Patricks Mills have informed us of New Parking Restrictions that will apply with IMMEDIATE effect and will affect our members

 

Mornings: Only PAID parking will be available!

This is available in the area near the entrance and also behind the Medical Centre.

A ticket from a machine (cost €1.50) TOGETHER WITH a DISC identifying car as belonging to a member will allow a car to be parked until 2PM

 The area at the far end is now reserved for customers of the businesses in that area ONLY. 

 

EVENINGS:

No Change to the present arrangements and members may continue to park at the far end as the businesses are not open in the evenings and hence the same demand for customer spaces doesn't apply

Paid parking also continues to be available in the area near the entrance and also behind the Medical Centre.

A ticket from a machine (cost €1.50) TOGETHER WITH a DISC identifying car as belonging to a member will allow a car to be parked 

Please note the club does not control the parking and anyone not complying with arrangements is at risk of being clamped!!!
