Discounted parking initiative to help shoppers in the run up to Christmas


Cork City Council is delighted to announce a special discounted parking initiative to help shoppers in the run up to Christmas. Customers who park on-street using the Park Magic park by phone system on Saturdays during December will get a 50% discount on the normal €2 rate. The 50% discounted on-street parking promotion with Park Magic will run on Saturdays 4th, 11th and 18th December 2010. For existing Park Magic customers, just park and call as normal and the system will automatically apply the 50% discount. 

For new customers, the Park Magic system is as fast and easy to use as making a phone call, and registering for the service takes less than five minutes. Pick up a free starter pack containing all the details of how to register - all new customers to the ParkMagic system receive €5 worth of free parking credit (see starter pack for full details of how to claim). Starter packs are available from the Reception desk at City Hall, Fitzgerald Electrical on Grand Parade, or directly from Park Magic – just call 0818 22 01 07.

So use Park Magic to save money, minimize the time spent parking, and maximize the time you have to enjoy the city!

In addition, Cork City Council has extended the hours of operation of the Black Ash park and ride facility, to allow customers to enjoy late night shopping on Thursdays and Fridays before Christmas.

The extended opening hours for the Black Ash park and ride will operate on Thursdays 9th, 16th and 23rd December, and Fridays 10th and 17th December. The charge of €5.00 covers all day parking, and the bus fare for the driver and passengers. The first bus will depart the Black Ash site at 07:30 and the last bus will depart Lapps Quay at 21:15, giving shoppers plenty of time to pick up that last minute bargain!
