The Gardaí have advised that a soft garda cordon will be in place from approx. 8.30am with the full garda cordon in place by approx. 10am and will remain in place until approx. 6.30pm. 

Please note the match throw-in times:  1pm and 3.30pm as they may cause Garda traffic restrictions to be implemented inside the cordon.

Full-time in the second fixture will be at approx. 5.05pm.  Gardaí have advised that road closures may come into effect from approx. 4.45pm onwards to facilitate the safe egress of match day patrons.  

Vehicle movement through the Garda cordon will be restricted during this exit period to ensure the safety of pedestrians and vehicles alike.  These road closures will be implemented for the shortest time necessary. As a guideline, this cordon will be in place for approx.90 minutes on Sunday after the Dublin V Tyrone match ends.

Irish Air Corps Fly-Past

A fly-past over the stadium by the Irish Air Corps will take place at approx. 3.25pm to coincide with the performance of the National Anthem in the stadium on Sunday afternoon; the fly-past is weather dependent.

Community Team On Duty

Members of the Croke Park Community Team will be on duty on Sunday to help their neighbours and monitor event day activity in the area.  If you require their assistance or wish to report any stadium related matter, you can contact the team by using the Croke Park Community Freephone 1800 303 593 or by email.

Residents Requiring Assistance

Local residents who require special assistance for themselves, family or friends gaining access through the Garda cordon on Sunday are advised to contact Julianne Savage in Croke Park on 01 865 8607 or by email.
