    Odd thread, but went to Kilkenny game on Sunday in Nolan Park. Arrived at the ground about 5 minutes before throw in and got right up to the round about and found what I thought was a lovely spot behind a car on the footpath.

    Arrive home this evening and find a €40 parking ticket in my letterbox..

    Anyone else at the game get one...

    Once you park on a footpath you can get a ticket as supposedly it’s obstructing people using the path getting past. If the wheels are on road you’re fine. Happened me in Thurles couple years ago, even though the way I parked was safer and there was loads of room. Big wide path
    There was approximately 40 others cars done the same day in a row

    The traffic wardens love GAA matches. They come out of the woodwork on a Sunday to catch lads parking in harmless spots for matches just to get a few quid.
    The scumbag clampers in Dublin are like vultures round a wounded animal whenever there's a big match on.

    No problem with them getting lads causing obstructions or blocking drive ways but they just go after everyone they can find. It's like a feeding frenzy.

    It must have been a guard gave you the ticket because sunday is usually free , did you park near a new estate with a lake in front of it .

    I thought that little bollix from Tipp was no longer stationed in Kilkenny?

    I got right up to the stadium next to roundabout on the M9 side.

    And totally was a guard as I passed him and he said hello as I walked by him with my 2 young sons 😀

    If you are confident you parked legally then contest it in court, if you didn't park legally then take it like a man.

    The night he put tickets on all the cars on the Hebron road when the cemmatry mass was going on.
