The introduction of parking charges at Castlebar train station caused controversy for the second month in a row at the monthly meeting of Castlebar Town Council. Fine Gael Town Councillor Brendan Heneghan brought to the attention of the elected members representations he had received from a woman whose car was clamped in the car park in the past month. Cllr Heneghan told the meeting: “Last Friday a woman got the train to Dublin and when she came back with her elderly mother she found her car had been clamped. It wasn’t that she was avoiding to pay the parking fee, but rather that she didn’t know there was one. And when she got off the train there waiting for her were what I can only call goons to charge her to get the clamp off. The woman didn’t have any cash on her and had only her Laser card and had to ring her husband to bring in cash to her so she could get the clamp off.”
