Limerick vs Clare Hurling Final, TUS Gaelic Grounds - 11 June 2023

The following is the Garda Traffic Management Plan to cater for the Munster Senior Hurling Championship Final, Limerick versus Clare @ 1.45pm on Sunday 11th. of June 2023 at the T.U.S. Gaelic Grounds, Ennis Road, Limerick City

A capacity crowd of 44,000 is expected to attend the game, which will cause significant traffic disruption in Limerick City and all approach roads to the city. 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, not parking on green areas or at locations where parking is prohibited. Cars illegally parked will be ticketed and those causing obstruction are likely to be towed away by Gardai

Crime Prevention Advice

An Garda Síochána would like all patrons travelling to the game on Sunday to have a safe trip so the here are a few tips for those travelling to the match

  • Don’t leave any valuables in your vehicle and if you must, keep them out of view.  This should be done before you get to your destination. 
  • There are likely to be large crowds at the match so parents should exercise caution and be aware of their child’s whereabouts at all times. 

Patrons are also reminded that parking of cars on any green areas in the City, particularly in the Clonmacken and Caherdavin areas is NOT PERMITTED and there is Signage in these areas. Offending Drivers are liable to have their cars ticketed or towed.

Do not park illegally - your actions may have consequences for Emergency Vehicle Access or cause damage to the local amenity
