‘It pays to stay home’ – Wicklow gardai dish out parking fines to day-trippers who flocked to local beaches
Wicklow gardai have dished out a raft of parking fines for day-trippers who flocked to local beaches last weekend, many of whom were outside their 5km restricted area.
Several vehicles were clocked parking illegally at Magheramore beach (pictured below) and Brittas Bay by gardai on Covid-19 patrols.
A local Garda spokesperson said in a caption accompanying the above picture: “Here are a selection of fixed charge notices for illegal parking that Gardaí issued today at Magheramore and Brittas Bay.”
In a warning ahead of the busy Bank Holiday weekend, they added: “It pays to stay home and stay safe.”
