“Blessington and Baltinglass are fortunate enough to already have free parking in place for their town centres, and I look forward to seeing local shoppers take full advantage of this in the lead up to Christmas.”
“Christmas and the holiday period is one of the most special times of the year, and a very important time for families and communities.”
“That’s why I’d love to see people supporting local businesses and initiatives, to help local families, especially at a time when costs have been on the rise.” Minister Harris concluded.
