Press Release

The following is the Garda Traffic Management Plan to cater for the Under 20 All Ireland Hurling Final @ 18.00 hours at the L.I.T. Gaelic Grounds, Ennis Road, Limerick City on Saturday the 24th of August 2019

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. Patrons are advised to strongly consider parking in the nearby city centre car parks and walk out to the stadium as this will save them considerable time in their journeys home after the game.

The following road closures and diversions will be in place from approximately 4p.m onwards on Saturday the 24th of August  2019.

• Ennis Rd. at its junction with Ivan’s Cross – traffic will be diverted to Northern Ring Road and towards Clonmacken
•  Salesians School/N.C.R – Road Closure
• Shelbourne Road/N.C.R at Clanmuarice – Road Closure

• Old Cratloe Road at its junction with Mayorstone Upper & LIT Roundabout (Merval Pk.) – Road Closure.

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”


Match patrons are again advised to travel early for this fixture and park up legally, using City Centre Car Parks or on Street parking in Limerick City and walk out to the Stadium. Also carparks provided near the Gaelic Grounds.

The area around the L.I.T. 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 in general following the game. 

Crime Prevention Advice

An Garda Síochána would like all patrons travelling to the game on Saturday 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
