Game in Pearse Stadium, Sunday 27th May 2018 Galway V Kilkenny in the Leinster Hurling Championship at 4pm
On behalf of Galway GAA and the Pearse Stadium Committee we welcome all GAA Supporters to Salthill on Sunday next, 27th May for first ever Leinster Hurling Championship game played in the West of Ireland. It will be a historic and epic occasion. This game on Sunday will result in increased traffic in the Galway, Salthill and Pearse Stadium areas and we urge all Supporters to arrive early, in order to avoid traffic congestion and potential delays entering the Stadium.
An Garda Síochana will implement a local area Traffic Management Plan and this will result in a number of access roads to Pearse Stadium being closed. (See Map). It is important to note that only residents with Car Pass Permits and those with Official Car Park Passes will be allowed access past these Garda cordons. There are ample Car Parks in Galway City and Salthill and we encourage patrons to use these car parks and walk or take public transport to/from Salthill. The 401 Bus from Eyre Square to Salthill will operate an increased service every 15 minutes from 1pm. Again, we ask all Supporters to arrive early, to park in the designated Car Parks and to park legally and responsibly, at all times. Designated Car Parks will be signposted. Finally, we appeal to all Supporters to be conscious, mindful and respectful to the needs of our neighbours and local residents. Please distribute and communicate this important notice to all your Clubs, Supporters and your Local Media.
1. Please ensure that you buy your ticket in advance!
2. Please travel with care and arrive early!
3. Please use designated Car Parks and park legally and responsibly.
4. Please be respectful and mindful of the needs of Local Residents
5. Enjoy the game Thank You for your cooperation and your support.
