Tesco Car Park. Like lobsters entering a pot - it's easy enough to get in but it ain't so easy to get out again with the new-fangled traffic management that forbids left turns towards Market Square. ALL of Dunnes and Tesco cars are funnelled into one lane and have to turn right across the traffic. It can take QUITE a WHILE to get out.
