Bargain hunters assemble.
Black Friday is almost upon us, and if you’ve got a Christmas shopping budget burning a hole in your pocket, there are plenty of bargains to be had for your buck.
Thanks to Cork City Council and the Cork Business Association, you can now nab free parking after 5pm in Paul Street and North Main Street car parks every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from November 22nd until January 12th too.
There will also be increased park and ride services, along with additional late-night buses, making the city more accessible than ever during prime shopping times.
