On and off street parking controlled by the county council in Ballinasloe, Loughrea, Tuam, Clifden, Cleggan, Athenry, and Gort will be free of charge over the Christmas period.

“This is to facilitate and encourage footfall in the regional towns during the Christmas shopping period,” a statement from the county council said.

This initiative will be in effect from Sunday, November 30, and remain in place throughout the month of December.
