Specifically, Gardaí are seeking to avoid congestion on Jones’ Road outside the Croke Park hotel, particularly for a period of approximately 30 minutes immediately after the game on Saturday.

Pre-Game Crowd Management Plan:

In the interest of safety patrons are advised as follows:

  1. Not to enter the Jones Road / Russell Street unless they hold a Hogan / Nally / Premium Stand ticket.
  2. Not to congregate in vicinity of Croke Park Hotel as this causes a serious obstruction to crowd movement in that area.
  3. Use coloured routes outlined on Croke Park websites to access the stadium.
  4. Patrons are requested to arrange meeting places away from Jones Road.
