Supporters coming from Roscommon, Sligo, and North Galway should travel to/from Pearse Stadium via the Quincentenary Bridge and avoid the City Centre if at all possible.
It is important to note that this is the designated route out from the Stadium after the game and all traffic lights on this route will be extensively manned by An Garda Síochána, to ensure that traffic flows effectively out of the City. (see Map above)
Patrons are requested to travel and arrive early and to park legally and responsibly, at all times. Illegal and hazardous car parking on Amenity Greens is strictly prohibited and City Traffic Wardens and An Garda Síochána may ticket and issue fines to any offending vehicle owners.

All Supporters travelling to Pearse Stadium for the games are asked to be conscientious, mindful and respectful of the needs of local residents.
