The Minister for Justice and Equality, Deputy Charlie Flanagan, has told local Deputy Fergus O’Dowd that the section of the Abbey Car Park that was used during the construction of the new Drogheda Courthouse is to be returned to public use.

“It is believed that the Office of Public Works will be entering into discussions with the Local Authority with a view to determining the future use of this area” the Minister told Deputy O’Dowd in response to a Dail question.

Deputy O’Dowd had asked whether the Minister for Justice and Equality if the carpark at the new courthouse in Drogheda will be available to the public on non sitting days; the terms of agreement on the car park.

"I welcome the progress made in returning the car park to the Office of Public Works” Deputy O’Dowd said, “I have written to the County Manager and to the OPW to stress the importance of returning the use of the car park to residents on non-sitting days."

O'Dowd added "The Minister has confirmed to me that discussions will be undertaken shortly on the matter and I would urge both the Louth County Council and the OPW to make a practical decision for the resident's and traders of the town immediately."
