However, supporters are being advised to plan their route carefully due to extensive traffic restrictions being in place across the city for Luas upgrade works.

Dublin's North and South quays will be closed for periods of the weekend causing traffic disruption in the city centre.

Extensive works on Luas Cross City means there will be traffic disruption on the north and south quays on the approach to O’Connell Bridge.

From 8pm on Friday 4 August until 6am Saturday 12 August, there will be a full closure of the south quays at O'Connell bridge.

Supporters travelling through the city are being advised to consider alternate routes as major traffic diversions will apply and delays are expected.
