GAA fans left irate after county final parking fines issued

first_imgDOZENS of GAA fans have been angered after receiving parking fines in the post this week from the 2016 Donegal county final.Fans were shocked this week to receive the €40 fixed penalty notices after the game at Sean MacCumhaill Park, Ballybofey, on 16 October last.The game attracted one of the biggest final attendances – 7,860 – in memory. No announcement was made in the ground in relation to the parking but this week motorists who parked on the Railway Road in Stranorlar were stunned to be slapped with the fines.“I have been parking in the same spot on that road for as long as I have been going to matches in Ballybofey and have never got a ticket,” one irate supporter said.“We were parked at the Council yard on the footpath. For games in MacCumhaill Park, this is where we always parked. There would have been well over 100 cars parked on the footpaths around there.“From the Church to where we were parked, on that one stretch, there were about 30 cars. “I would safely say 100 people would have got these fines. People always park there for Mass in Stranorlar, but you don’t see Massgoers getting hit with these fines.“It was a low move and would hardly encourage people to return to matches in the future.”GAA fans left irate after county final parking fines issued was last modified: January 6th, 2017 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img
