Additional long stay parking is to be provided in the Lower Courthouse carpark.

Monaghan MD says it's confident there'll be sufficient parking in the town despite closure of McNally's Carpark.

It's to close next week, however Aldi won't be building a new store at the site.

Earlier this week, Monaghan County Council said that it'll no longer be operating the site near the traffic lights from the end of the month.

A spokesperson for the Monaghan Municipal District says it's to close next Tuesday, as the site's current owners Aldi, have not renewed the lease.

The German retailer had permission to build a store at McNally's Carpark but yesterday said those planned were scrapped after "unsuccessful negotiations" with Monaghan County Council on significant flood relief works.

The announcement of the closure of the carpark raised concerns about the availability of parking spaces elsewhere in the town.

However in response to this, the MD says it's confident in the current parking capacity.

Additional long stay parking is to be provided in the Lower Courthouse carpark, while 100 car parking spaces are leased to the council at the Monaghan Harps grounds, where pay parking isn't required.

It was also confirmed that up to 90 spaces could be created, with the council planning to construct a new car park at the former Eircom site on the Broad Road.
