Dublin Lord Mayor's car clamped... outside city council offices

Not ideal.

DUBLIN CITY COUNCIL has confirmed that a car used to transport the city’s Lord Mayor to and from events was clamped outside the offices of the city council today.

This afternoon, the Irishtown House Twitter account posted this picture of a Volvo S80, with registration 151-D-1, parked and clamped outside the council offices on Wood Quay in the city centre.

A spokesperson for Dublin City Council later confirmed that the car is used to transport the Lord Mayor of Dublin to and from her appointments.

They added that the picture is believed to have been taken earlier today.

The current Lord Mayor of Dublin is Sinn Féin’s Críona Ní Dhálaigh, who was elected to the position last week.
