Route change announced for St Patrick's Day parade
A route change has been announced for Dublin's St Patrick's Day parade due to road works.
People planning on attending are being advised to leave early and plan ahead as a number of diversions will be in place which may lengthen the journey.
The festival parade will now travel down the East side of O'Connell Street (Clerys side), O'Connell Bridge and on to Westmoreland Street.
It will start at 12pm and is expected to be at full capacity early on.
Members of the public hoping to view the parade on O'Connell Street are to access it via the Rosie Hackett Bridge and Marlborough Street.
Street signage will be in place and members of An Garda Síochána will be there to assist.
People attending are asked to give consideration to elderly people, families with young children and those with impaired mobility.
