Spectators are advised that An Garda Síochána will be implementing a post game crowd management plan in the vicinity of Jones Road and patrons are advised as follows:
1. Patrons exiting the Hogan Stand and Nally Square are requested not to congregate in vicinity of Croke Park Hotel as this causes a serious obstruction to crowd
2. Full closure of Jones Road / Russell Street to all patrons except those exiting the Hogan Stand and Dineen Stand.
We ask all supporters to comply with the directions issued by Gardaí and stewards as they depart the stadium. The measures are being implemented to prevent crowd congestion on the street outside the Croke Park Hotel which has become a meeting point for supporters attending Croke Park events.
Compliance will greatly assist Gardaí with crowd management and movement around the stadium, and all directions are issued with a view to making the stadium environs a safer place during entry and exit for everyone attending Sunday’s games.
