Limerick e-Parking also enables customers to avail of the good value off-street parking offers in Limerick city car parks, including the facility to pre-book and purchase overnight parking.
Cllr. Liam Galvin, Mayor of the City and County of Limerick said, “The introduction of this free parking scheme will be very much welcomed by both local retailers and the public alike. The Christmas lights displays and the comprehensive Christmas In Limerick programme of events are complemented by the Free From 3 initiative which will further help to create a festive atmosphere and enhance the overall shopping experience.”
Meanwhile, Mayor Galvin has urged shoppers throughout Limerick City and County to buy local this Christmas, adding that by supporting local businesses they are helping to sustain employment within the community.
