OVER 100 fines were issued to motorists for parking illegally during the Kerry v Dublin Allianz National Football League game in Tralee on February 5.

A traffic management plan was put in place by An Garda Síochána and Kerry GAA from 4pm to 10pm on the evening of the match.  A large parking area at Fels Point near The Rose Hotel was made available on the night for matchgoers.

Fines for impeding access for emergency vehicles and safe passageway for pedestrians and cyclists on both footpaths and cycle ways, had doubled from €40 to €80 from February 1.

Kerry host Donegal in a football league game this Sunday in Fitzgerald Stadium in Killarney and matchgoers are asked to park responsibly.

    Wow, that’s a new one.

    I recall not too long ago in Tralee, an Garda Síochána allowing illegally parking for GAA fans while going and ticketing Cinema customers cars.

    Basically, there is a history of selective implication of the law by an Garda Síochána.

    Is there now a credible person with authority in an Garda Síochána?

    Shocking 😉
