Road trials on Hawkin's Lane has led to changes to the Ploughing traffic management plan for Tullow, it has been revealed. 

In a post on Facebook, Cllr Will Paton said: "I have been informed that following the conclusion of the road trials around Hawkin's Lane [on Wednesday] morning that a number of important changes have been made to the proposed traffic management in Tullow during the championships."

He added that these include:

* Hawkin's Lane will not be used to route traffic to Carlow/Castledermot as the route is sub optimal 
* Instead An Garda Síochana will "man" all affected junctions to keep traffic flowing
* Parking will be prohibited on Abbey Street and Church Street 
* Nose in parking on the Market Square will also be prohibited for two weeks (the weeks of and the week after the ploughing)
* Parallel parking will be permitted both sides of the Market Square
