TRAFFIC arrangements for Sunday's All-Ireland Finals have been announced.
Kilkenny will take on Clare in the minor final at 1.15pm and Kilkenny play Tipperary in the senior final at 3.30pm.
Traffic restrictions will be in place in Drumcondra and surrounding areas. AA Roadwatch has advised a full garda cordon will be in place two hours before the stiles open and for one hour after the match. Clonliffe College, Drumcondra Road will offer 3,100 parking spaces, including 100 special needs bays.
Another facility at O'Connell's School, North Richmond Street, will have 400 spaces.
However, the 80,000 fans travelling to Croke Park are being advised to leave the cars at home and use public transport where possible, or park and ride facilities.
Luas and Iarnród Eireann will be running extra services for match-goers. Traffic congestion is expected and motorists should allow extra time for these delays.
