Christ is Murph, if I am correct you are Darren Murphy, another local election candidate. Firstly, good luck in the election, we will all have a long slog for the next four weeks.
Secondly, I first found out about that van parking in a disabled bay when a friend told me to check this forum. It was here I read that the van owners relative was in a wheelchair. Then the Herald phoned me and and I told them exactly what I read here. After speaking with the owner of the van, whom you also know, he informed me that it was his elderly grandmother that he was taking to the shop. I was not there and I can only go by what I have been told in good faith. Like I said, I asked him to park responsibly in future. I think thats an understandable explanation Darren
Well i suggest you go back to him and ask him again. The person who took the photo stated here that he clearly saw him get out of the van on his own and drive off on his own. I'm not telling you how to run your campaign it's your own thing, but this carry on can not happen. Plus you know the mother of the driver, you know she is not in a wheelchair, so no matter what is said on this forum you should still know yourself the situation.
Andrew I wish you the best of luck yourself, now is not exactly an ideal time for any Fianna Fáil candidate (entirely to blame on the part of your party)
