Chamber to organise petition on pay-parking


In response to ongoing concerns about the town’s pay-parking scheme and its effects on local trade, the President of Mallow Chamber, Seán Lynch, will hold three public meetings to discuss possible solutions to this ongoing issue. These meetings will be solution-based as opposed to discussing the problem. Following this consultative process, the Chamber will draft a petition, proposing a positive solution to the town parking issue. This will be presented to the townspeople of Mallow for signing and will be submitted to the Kanturk/Mallow Municipal District and Cork County Council.

The Chamber has organised three meetings, to be held on Thursday next, January 21st in the Hibernian Hotel, to allow as many people as possible to participate. These meetings will be open to the business community in Mallow as well as the general public. The meetings will be held at the following times: 8.30-9.30am (tea/scones available), 1.05-1.50pm (soup/sandwiches available), and 6.05-7pm. (tea/scones available).

“I appreciate this is a very emotive issue and feelings run very deep. We expect a large turnout of Mallow people who want to have their say in the drafting of this petition. Once a final draft has been agreed it will be available for signing throughout the shops in Mallow for a two-week period from 28th January to February 14th,” said Mallow Chamber President Seán Lynch.

Attendance will be free but, as these are catered events, booking is essential. This can be done either by e-mail at or by phoning the Mallow Chamber Office at 022-55660.
