Cllr Anthony Kelly has called for the introduction of a park and ride system to deal with the ongoing problem with parking around Wexford park during big matches. The Sinn Féin rep moved a motion at last week's meeting of Wexford Borough Council calling for the GAA County Board and the Gardaí to meet with the Council to bring about a resolution.
"The parking situation around Wexford Park on match day is becoming an increasing problem," Cllr Kelly said, "For many years residents living in the local estates around the park have been greatly inconvenienced by the lack of co-ordinated parking. It's not just a problem for these residents however as people attending the matches and general traffic coming through are being endangered by the haphazard parking."
"I'm glad to say that the members of Wexford Borough Council have unanimously supported my motion calling for a meeting to be arranged between the Council, the Gardaí and the GAA County Board to finally find a resolution to this problem, and for the idea of a park and ride system to investigated and, if suitable, deployed on match day."
