All Ireland Hurling Final Big Screen Event on the 19/8/18 at the Gaelic Grounds, Limerick

 Garda Traffic Management Plan to cater for the screening of the All-Ireland Hurling Final at the Gaelic Grounds, Ennis Road, Limerick City on Sunday afternoon on the 19th August 2018. 

To maximise everyone’s enjoyment of the day Garda advice to patrons is to arrive in plenty of time to park up cars legally, i.e. not causing obstruction, on green areas or on locations where parking is prohibited. Cars illegally parked will be ticketed and those causing obstruction are likely to be towed away by Gardai. Patrons are advised to use the available designated parking near the grounds or to strongly consider walking to the stadium from the nearby city centre car parks. 

The following road closures and diversions will be in place from 1.30pm on Sunday 19th August 2018. 


Road Closures/diversions will likely to apply from 1.30 pm onwards at the following locations:

  • Ennis Road at its junction with Ivan’s Cross – traffic will be diverted to Northern Ring Road and towards Clonmacken
  • Ennis Road at its junction with Union Cross- traffic will be diverted to Lower Shelbourne Road

Traffic restrictions will also be in place in Clonmacken and Ennis road areas.

Gardai are advising patrons travelling from the West Limerick direction to use the Tunnel if they intend to drive but to expect delays in the Clonmacken / Condell Road areas prior to and following the event.

If you are driving to the match the Gardaí would appeal to patrons to keep to the speed limits, never “Drink & Drive”, “Text & Drive” or “Phone & Drive”


The area around the Gaelic Grounds will remain clear of vehicles to allow for patrons who are on foot approaching the stadium. There is no parking available near the grounds and patrons the advice is to use the City centre car parks. 

Patrons parking in the Clonmacken/ Condell Road & Caherdavin areas are advised to do so legally and to expect delays in these areas and across Limerick City in general following the events. 

Patrons crossing any of the bridges in the City to park their vehicles nearer to the Gaelic Grounds can expect traffic delays on their home journeys.
