A tweet on An Garda Siochana’s official Twitter account read: “Cars parked illegally and blocking a very busy road, reducing traffic to one lane and preventing access for the fire brigade and ambulance services.

“45 FCN’s in total issued for dangerous parking.”

Tallaght and Rathfarnham Superintendent Ian Lackey told The Echo: “The big thing here is that if there was a fire, a fire brigade would not have gotten up that road.

“We’re asking people to use the carparks.

“And, if you can’t use the car parks, please park somewhere that is safe and lawful to do so.”
