Easter Sunday

1. Gardaí are encouraging everybody who wishes to attend the Easter Parade on Sunday 27th March to please use PUBLIC TRANSPORT.

• The NTA in association with all Public Transport Providers have developed a significant Public Transport network for the day.

• In a nutshell: If you live outside the M50 try to leave your car outside the M50. If you live inside the M50 try to leave your car outside the Grand Canal on the Southside or outside the North Circular Road on the Northside. Traffic Management Plan

• See the following websites for maps and more information:

2. Select the area that you want to view the parade in advance of travelling.

• There are five alternative viewing areas where large screens have been erected. These are: Smithfield, Kings Inn, Merrion Square, St. Stephen’s Green and Trinity College.

• A large portion of O’Connell Street is a restricted area with very limited access for Ceremonial Reasons.

• Keep children under close supervision. Children should have phone numbers for their guardians in the event of accidental separation. (eg: write it on their clothing tags, their arm or a piece of paper and tell them where it is!)

3. Come early. Large crowds are expected.

• Get into position and know your route to public transport.

• Check the weather and dress appropriately.

• Mind your belongings.

• Remember it is illegal to drink alcohol in a public place in Dublin City.

• Please follow signage and all directions from Stewards and Gardaí
