Revised Match Day Arrangements for Páirc Uí Chaoimh
G.A.A. supporters planning to go to Sunday’s Allianz National Hurling League game between Cork and Kilkenny should note there will be increased enforcement of parking regulations in the environs of Pairc Ui Chaoimh and on approach roads to the venue.
As with last Sunday’s double fixture, there will be increased use of barriers at residential areas and a presence in these areas of Gardai and GAA stewards. Increased policing and tow away services will be in position.
Vehicular access to Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Sunday will be primarily through Centre Park Road and Monahan Road. Some free parking will be available to matchgoers at the western side of Páirc Uí Chaoimh but the former Ford site, used last Sunday for parking to great effect, is not available because of a previous commercial booking.
Garda have requested motorists to observe parking regulations and if using on-street parking, to do so appropriately, in compliance with the law and with due concern for the needs of others.
The new traffic arrangements are part of an evolving programme to reduce the impacts of traffic and parking in residential areas near the stadium on match day.
Bob Ryan, chairman of Cork County Board, said the arrangements put in place for the first time for last Sunday’s double header has worked well. “We had tremendous co-operation from our supporters and I would like to thank the Gardai, our own stewards and local residents for their contributions last Sunday.”
The Kilkenny Under 21 team will take on their Cork counterparts in a challenge game to be played as a curtainraiser at 12.15 before the Senior League game on Sunday so Kilkenny supporters are advised to travel early if they wish to see both games.
