An angry Campervan owner contacted the Donegal Democrat today after being fined for causing an obstruction” in a totally empty car park on Atlantic Way on the Sunday morning before last.
Dr. Mark Hollaway said: “I stayed in Lakeside Caravan Park in Ballyshannon at the weekend and decided to go to Bundoran on the Sunday Morning.
“I saw the traffic warden going about so was careful about parking the van and found an empty car park (totally empty) and paid for and displayed my ticket.
“I got €40 parking ticket and asked traffic warden where I could have parked and was told “It is not up to the Council to provide you with parking”.
“I thought a simple email to the town council officials would sort it out but two emails later and I’m still “causing an obstruction”.
Dr. Holloway added “I wouldn’t mind if it was really busy and we were causing an obstruction but car park was completely empty and it was Sunday morning.”
This newspaper contacted the Mayor of Bundoran, Cllr. Phillip McGlynn who said that he was aware of the incident and that he had asked the Town Clerk for a full report on the matter.
