Tullamore hospital car park generated €400,000

New figures show that the car park at Midland Regional Hospital in Tullamore generated more than €400,000 in revenue last year.

The cost of maintaining the facility in 2016 was almost €95,000, meaning more than €105,000’s worth of profit was made.

Parking charges at the hospital range from €1 for an hour to €5 for a full day.

These figures were revealed at a meeting of the Dublin-Mid-Leinster Regional Forum yesterday, in response to a question from Dublin councillor Vicki Casserly.

The car park income in Tullamore last year was significantly more than two other hospitals in the group.

Midland Regional Hospital in Portlaoise had receipts of €322,000, while the income at Naas General Hospital was €137,000.
