The amount of large paid parking signs in Maynooth region has drawn complaints from a number of residents.

That's according to Fine Gael councillor Tim Durkan, who made the comments at the latest Clane-Maynooth Municipal District meeting held earlier today.

Cllr Durkan said that each sign is around 4 foot by 5 foot, and vast number of them is 'unsightly.'

"It's become a bit over-prolific with some of the larger signs," Cllr Durkan said to those in attendance: "Can we review some of them?"
