The Festival Parade will now come down the EAST side of O’Connell Street (Clery’s side), O’ Connell Bridge East and on to Westmoreland Street. These changes will affect how the general public get around the city. Diversions will be in place which may lengthen journey times so it is advised to plan ahead.
Public coming to view the Parade on O’Connell Street East should access via Rosie Hackett Bridge and Marlborough Street. It is anticipated that viewing on O’ Connell Bridge will be at capacity early.
There will be directional street signage in place and An Garda Síochána and stewards will be there to assist.
The Festival Parade route is extended and there is now viewing on Kevin Street.
Local residents and public using the LUAS green line, terminating at Stephen’s Green should consider availing of this new viewing opportunity.
When the Festival parade finishes there will be diversions in place. Please co-operate with An Garda Síochána, security and stewards.
