Post-pandemic, my once admirable driving skills need a brush-up. What about yours?

Covid has many side effects. Some people lose their taste. Others have brain fog. I lost the ability to parallel park. Not that I’ve had Covid – officially or yet. However, lockdowns locked me out of Dublin for so long I fell out of parking practice.

Being judged for making a hames of parking on a busy street is mortifying. The worst bit was realising I had no idea what I was supposed to be doing. I had a brilliant driving instructor in my youth and passed my test first time. It’s an achievement I brag about at every opportunity, but I had never actually been technically taught how to parallel park.
