A new method of paying for parking has gone live in towns across the county today.

The eParking Service was launched in Clonmel this morning and applies for parking in each of the nine towns in Tipperary that currently have pay parking, including Tipperary town.

The new system involves downloading the Tipperary eParking App.  Then, by pre-purchasing credit for the app, motorists and visitors can use it to select the zone, the amount of time they want to pay for, and ensure parking is paid for.

The new system will also allow people to extend their parking time without the need to go back to their car.

The new app is available to download via the App Store or Google Play.

More details are available on

Seamus Healy has hit out at Fianna Fail following reports that Michael Martin has been speaking to Leo Varadkar about the possibility of reducing the amount of speaking time being made available to smaller parties and groupings, most of which are left-leaning.

Mr Martin is believed to be unhappy that smaller parties have the same amount of speaking time as larger ones, adding that his back benchers are frustrated by the current system.  But Tipperary’s Seamus Healy believes it is an attempt at a power grab by the two larger parties.

He has also maintained that the current system does not give the smaller parties and groupings the same time as FF and FG.
