I have received a message from a resident living in the vicinity of Delvin Church, appealing to those attending services to keep nearby driveways clear.
This a sensitive issue. Parking is tight – especially when there is a large service taking place, but residents should be able to get in and out of their homes at all times. On one recent occasion, a white van was parked across an entrance for more than an hour and the residents were unable to leave their property.
Delvin Gardai have previously stated that people are welcome to use their car park, providing the entrance and compound gates are kept clear.
A copy of the email has been shared with the Delvin Parish office and other relevant parties to see if there are any other solutions available for when a large attendance is expected.
