Weekend Travel Arrangements

22nd August 2014

The GAA advises patrons travelling to Croke Park for this weekend’s GAA Football semi-finals to allow more time for their journeys in light of the planned disruption to rail services.

Supporters are asked to consider other modes of public transport or services organised by GAA units and those travelling by car should be mindful of the likelihood of increased volumes of traffic on the routes to the capital from both Mayo and Kerry.
 
The usual traffic restrictions will apply in the Croke Park area.
 
To facilitate the early arrival of supporters, turnstiles at the stadium will open 30 minutes earlier than normal at noon.
 
We ask that those travelling exercise caution on their journeys and wish everyone a safe and enjoyable day out.
 
An Garda Síochána have informed the GAA of the following:
