Are you one of the lucky ones heading to Croke Park to see U2 bring The Joshua Tree tour home? Hot Press all the information you need to ensure a smooth evening out.
Here’s all the advice from promoters MCD:
Most importantly, here’s the times:
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds: 19:00
There is no overnight / early queuing allowed before gates. If patrons do turn up they will be turned away at restricted area points around the Stadium. Queuing in streets around the Stadium will cause disruption to local residents and MCD appeal to patrons to heed this advice and respect the community living in the vicinity of the stadium.
There are many methods of getting to and from the stadium. Here’s MCD’s advice:
In collaboration with the tour's greening efforts, we encourage all fans to walk, bike, or use public transportation to the show, but if you must drive, please carpool.
Allow at least an extra 2 hours travel time to & from the venue.
As traffic and parking delays are inevitable you are strongly advised to use public transport. (Bus, dart or luas) There are no parking facilities available locally.
Please use city centre car parks and car pool.
