All Council-Run Car Parks At Beaches And Parks Closed

Clare County Council has closed all local authority operated car parks at beaches and parks until further notice.

It follows throngs of people flocking to many popular spots in the county such as Lahinch and Kilkee beaches, despite social distancing guidelines being in place.

It follows a decision earlier this week to close the woodland walks at the 12 O’Clock Hills near Kilkishen this coming weekend.


All council operated buildings will also remain closed, in line with advice from the government and the HSE.

Lisdoonvarna Fine Gael Councillor Joe Garrihy, who is a manager at Lahinch Leisure World, says the crowds descending on the coastal village last week shows the necessity for measures like this.
