Dublin at Christmas is lovely for many things.
Lights, live cribs and most of all - the ability to park anywhere, with no stress.
However, all good things must come to an end - and this ominous tweet has brought everything down to a crashing halt.
Please note that PAID PARKING is in operation today.That is you must pay for parking today.

Paid parking is back with a bang, meaning those parking in town should be aware that clampers are about.
And if that doesn't scare you enough, AA Roadwatch favourited the tweet - meaning it's super legit.
You've been warned...
