Monaghan County Council is set to explore the introduction of "hidden disability" parking spaces.

The motion was raised by Councillor Richard Truell, who called for the spaces to be made available at popular family spots and in busy car parking areas.

He says this would "accommodate families of individuals with hidden conditions, such as autism or a sensory disability, who wouldn't have a disabled parking badge but need to be able to park closer to certain facilities".
