Parking on National Secondary road

    On the approach to Kilkenny along the N10 theres a number of cars normally parked up on the hard shoulder. Is this legal, do the Gardai have powers to move them on

    Seem to be people getting lifts in the morning but its not the sort of thing where you can put down double yellow lines on a rural road?

    It's the same thing on the N33 (National Primary) approaching the M1 in Louth - I guess it's a pick up point for buses using the M1.

    The roads authority can put up no parking signs on rural roads

    If the cars are on a hard shoulder, not causing an obstruction to an entrance or junction, what's the problem?
    You can legally park on a road without hard shoulders if there isn't a no-overtaking white line.

    You might be interested in the R132 just south of the Monasterboice M1 motorway junction in Louth. There is a hard shoulder present on both sides and over a 600 metre stretch there are periodic clearway signs along with the no parking signs at the start and end of the clearway. The road was built as a wide S1 back in the 60s.

    Or it's not explicitly marked as a no parking zone.
