The cost to parents when school buildings are used as polling stations has been highlighted by a Kiltimagh mother to Mayo County Council.

Aine Carr says she believes the local authority could find alternative venues in Kiltimagh on election days instead of the local primary school, forcing working parents to find childcare or take a day off work.

She says she has no childcare available to her on days that the school closes for elections or referenda  and there are many parents in a similar situation.

She suggests a number of suitable alternative venues in Kiltimagh including the Town Hall Theatre, Community Centre or Parish Centre
