GARDAI have issued a warning over traffic delays in and around Dublin today – because 100,000 people are expected to view the last day of the Tall Ships visit to the city.
With up to 50,000 heading for Croke Park from Donegal and Cork, it is expected to add to delays and parking problems.
“Members of the public should ensure that they park legally and that they do not obstruct roadways or houses. They are strongly advised to utilise the public transport systems,” said a Garda spokesman.
“Additional traffic volumes are expected in these areas and members of the public should allow sufficient time for their journeys.
Fans planning to combine a Tall Ships visit with Croker can see the events below:
