Traffic management plan for Sunday games in Salthill

Galway Daily news Pearse Stadium traffic management plan

Gardaí will be enforcing a traffic management plan around Pearse Stadium in Salthill on Sunday due to the back to back matches taking place.

The traffic management plan is being put in place by the Gardaí due to large numbers of people expected in town for the first round of the Allianz Hurling and Football leagues.

The double header will kick off with Galway v Westmeath in the Hurling League at 12:30pm, followed by Galway v Monaghan in the Football League at 2:30pm.

A number of access roads in residential areas near the stadium will be closed during this time, and only residents with Car Pass Permits and those with Official Car Park Passes will be allowed access to those Residential areas.

Anyone attending either of the games tomorrow is being urged by Galway GAA to arrive early to avoid traffic congestion and delays getting into the stadium.

Beyond the regular car parks around the city, additional car parking will be available at St. Enda’s College on Threadneedle Road for the Sunday games.

Supporters are asked to arrive early, park in the designated car parks which will be signposted, and be conscious of the needs of local residents during the games.
