Businesses are losing millions annually. They are pissed off with the inadequate parking. I will do all I can,” he declared.Independent councillor Emmett O’Brien took the view that there is the perception that the Council has an “anti-Adare bias”.“The perception is that Adare gets everything but I don’t think that is an accurate perception,” Cllr O’Brien said.Sinn Fein councillor Ciara McMahon believed that parking “badly needs to be looked at” in Adare.“There’s no two ways about it,” she insisted.Fianna Fáil councillor Kevin Sheahan took the view that visitors arriving into Adare need to see parking if they are going to use it.
