Irish Rail row back on parking charges at Dromod train station for now

Irish Rail are postponing the introduction of paid parking at Dromod train station.

Recent expansion at the station has seen car parking spaces doubled, with only pre-paid online parking introduced, without any cash machines in place.

However, there has been criticism that some older people may not have a smart phone or computer, and might not know how to buy a ticket online.

Speaking on Let’s Talk this afternoon, spokesperson for Irish Rail Jane Creegan says they have listened to the feedback and will hold off until a cash machine is in place.
