With the June Bank Holiday looming, and the weather forecast favourable for outdoor pursuits, positive efforts are being made to avoid last week’s traffic chaos at Cahore Pier.
Cllr Mary Farrell has announced a temporary solution to some of the parking problems at the popular North Wexford resort.
“I have been working on this issue with Wexford County Council for some time and just today (Thursday) a final agreement was made with landowners to allow a field at the South Beach end of the beautiful cliff walk to be used as a car park that will connect to another temporary car park at the pier.
“Work will commence on Tuesday morning and hopefully will be operational by next weekend and it is intended that visitors to Cahore will be encouraged to park at South Beach and take the cliff walk to the pier for refreshments or just to enjoy the amazing views.
“The pier car park is intended to ease the dreadful parking problems at this beautiful attraction. Further measures of barriers will soon be in place also,” concluded Cllr Farrell.
