Likely end of trading for ice-cream van at Glencar as no casual trading bay included in new bye-laws

There won’t be a casual trading bay at Glencar Waterfall as part of new bye-laws adopted by Leitrim County Council this week.

The Council says it’s been years since the laws were updated and many of the bays are not in regular use anymore.
