The following is the Garda Traffic Management Plan to cater for above Allianz Hurling League Quarter-Final, Limerick V Clare at the Gaelic Grounds, Ennis Road, Limerick City on Sunday afternoon on the 18th March 2018.


The 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 parking or to consider walking to the stadium if they are hoping to attend the International Band Parade which is also taking place on that date.


Road Closures/diversions will likely to apply from 2.00pm onwards at the following locations;

  • Ennis Rd. 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 along Shelbourne Road
  • Roundabout at Salesian School, Fernbank (Off Condell Road) – Traffic will not be permitted to travel onto North Circular road or onto Shelbourne Road
  • Old Cratloe Road at its junction with Mayorstone Drive  
  • Old Cratloe Road at its junction with Mayorstone Upper
  • Old Cratloe Road at its junction with Mayorstone Upper & LIT Roundabout(Merval Pk.)

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


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


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”




Parking is available for match traffic from 2.30pm-5.30pm on the Bus Lane on the Condell Road. Cars parked before or after this time will be removed.


Match patrons are also advised that parking is available at LIT and also at the City centre car parks.


The area around the Gaelic Grounds will remain clear of vehicles to allow for patrons who are on foot approaching the stadium.


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 game.


Patrons crossing any of the Bridges in the City to park their vehicles nearer the Gaelic Grounds can expect traffic delays on their home journeys and are advised to park in the City and not cross the Bridges in the City.

AGS 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. 
  • Garda members will be in possession of public safety wristbands for children and vulnerable people who are attending the match.
  • Reduce the risk of theft or interference with property and do not leave any bags/mobile phones or other valuables in vehicles

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.
