Thousands of people have signed a petition to keep cars out of Dublin's Phoenix Park.
It aims to allow people to use the facility as a park, rather than a diversion, to avoid traffic elsewhere.
Green Party Councilor Michael Pidgeon started the petition, after seeing the benefits of the facility being quiet during lockdown.
He says the park should be treated as a national asset rather than a national road.
He says: "People were commenting, strangers but also friends, talking about how quiet it was, how pleasant it was.
"Even though it was really busy it was paradoxically quite quiet as well. In parts that was because there was so little 'through' traffic going through the park.
"So what we are hoping to do is, not to ban cars completely from the park as it is still really important that everyone regardless of their ability or age can access everywhere in the park,
"We want to just stop it being used as a kind of like a national road."
