DONEGAL SUPPORTERS traveling to Saturday’s All-Ireland Round 4B qualifier against Cork at Croke Park are asked to be mindful of serious traffic diversions in Dublin.
The Donegal-Cork game at 4pm is part of a triple-header at Croke Park. It will be preceded by the All-Ireland MFC quarter-final, also between Donegal and Cork, at 2pm and will be followed by the qualifier between Mayo and Westmeath at 6pm.
There will be a huge volume of traffic in Dublin also because of The International Champions Cup game between Barcelona and Celtic at Aviva Stadium, a game which begins at 6pm.
AA Roadwatch and the GAA have issued advice to supporters who will be making their way to the capital.
“To facilitate essential Luas Cross City construction works, Dublin’s north and south quays will be closed to eastbound and westbound traffic at O’Connell Bridge, from 8pm on Friday 29th July until 6am on Tuesday 2nd August,” a statement read.
“Major traffic diversions will apply through the city centre and car park access will be maintained.
“All traffic diversion and access maps are available on the Luas Cross City website www.luascrosscity.ie. The works are being concentrated into as short a number of days as possible and we hope to have the quays reopened on schedule on Tuesday morning.”
For people travelling into the city centre over the Bank Holiday weekend, there are a number of Public Transport enhancements which will be available over the weekend, including:
- Free Parking at all DART, Commuter Rail (within Short-Hop Zone) and Luas Park and Ride sites;
- Additional Luas and Dart services; and
- ‘Kids go Free’ on all bus, rail and Luas services in the Dublin area, with a valid Leap Card.
For people travelling by car to attend matches over the weekend in either Croke Park or the Aviva Stadium, they should avoid the city centre completely and use the M50 to access Croke Park from the north side (exiting the M50 at Junction 3), and to access the Aviva Stadium from the south side of the city (exiting the M50 at Junction 14).
Dublin City Council will be operating its Radio Station, 103.2 FM, broadcasting live from the Traffic Control Centre on Saturday from 1pm to 7pm and on Sunday from 1pm to 6pm, providing up-to-date traffic information.Tags:
