GARDAI have urged One Direction fans to be prudent and to read up on travel advice before going to Croke Park.

No overnight queueing is permitted, and anyone who attempts to do so will be turned away, stadium management has advised.

The standing area on the pitch is sectioned into quadrants - so there is no advantage to queueing early, MCD has said.

Fans have been urged to use public transport to get to the venue, as several streets close to Croke Park will be closed to cars.

Irish Rail and DART services are running at extra capacity to accommodate the increased numbers.

Lost children:

There are two designated pick-up areas for parents.

  • At Mountjoy Square East and
  • Mater Dei Car Park on Clonliffe Road.

Gardai have emphasised that these areas are pedestrian pick up zones - parents/guardians will only have access by foot.

Car Parks:

There will be two supervised car parks:

  • Cloncliffe College on Clonliffe Road can be entered via the Lower Drumcondra road, while
  • O’Connell’s School on North Richmond Street can be entered via the North Circular Road.

After the concert a post-gig crowd management plan will be put in place.

Fans exiting the Hogan Stand and Nally Square are requested not to congregate in the vicinity of Croke Park Hote. This causes a serious obstruction to crowd movement.

Concertgoers exiting Cusack Stand and Pitch to Clonliffe Rd will not be allowed enter onto Jones Road for the same reason.

And fans exiting the Davin Stand to North Circular Rd will not be allowed enter onto Russell St / Jones Rd.
