    I can’t believe this isn’t causing ructions

    the main retail thoroughfare in the country is being barricaded off
    parking in the North Inner City is suspended

    access to James, Crumlin Childrens and the Coombe
    and what I call the Industrial Belt, Kylemore Ballyier
    no Luas

    for what exactly
    to facilitate Prayers

    he’s driving a Skoda ffs
    its not like he’s travelling in a convoy of armored tanks and flatbeds carrying nukes and bio-weapons

    Croke Park deal with full houses all the time
    same with Phoenix Park

    this Nope On Tour has getting out of hand afaic
    time to get a grip and tell them to get over themselves

      It’ll be worse down in Knock, where they’ll have snipers for his holiness’s protection. As if anyone bar some Ian Paisley-esque loony would bother their hoop trying to take him out, hitman style.

      Croke Park copes with 80,000 people, and this involves road closures:
      Russell Street/Jones Road
      Lower Drumcondra Road /Whitworth Road
      Lower Drumcondra Road /Richmond Road/ Botanic Avenue
      Ballybough Road / Luke Kelly Bridge
      Ballybough Road / North Strand Road
      Summerhill / North Circular Road

      The pope’s gig is expecting 500,000 people – that is more than SIX simultaneous Croke Park’s worth of people.

        This is just a small example of why Cian is consistently one of the most useful posters on this site.

        I’ve lived in the area for 40 years and have NEVER seen any portion of Drumcondra Rd, Botanic Ave, Whitworth Rd or North C Road closed off for matches at any level.

        1. Frilly Keane

          And I’ve never seen O’Connell street Henry Street etc limited either

          And btw
          Even AI day you can drive the Dorset Street Drumcondra Road route to the Airport

          Like I said
          Get a grip

    Got the maps yesterday in the post.
    Couldn’t believe the Garda map; a glossy print job of a pathetically low-resolution image. Impossible to make out the text. What was the point?

    1. Spaghetti Hoop

      Ha, yes, the low res map is impossible to decipher – really crap piece of work. It’s going to be Storm Francis for me; stock up and stay indoors. Either that or ABSCOND.

  3. Cú Chulainn

    It’s designed to stop any protest in the city.. nonetheless, I’ll be using my holy dope tickets for free public transport for the day..!!

  4. Truth in the News

    Whats its all about is to limit protest in the Center of Dublin and deny access
    and the same goes for travelling south from Knock Airport to make sure that
    as few as possible get to anything in Tuam…..McQuaid is alive and well and
    seems to have rose from the dead in the last couple of weeks and a resurrection
    featuring Dev is on the cards for next Sunday week

  5. ReproButina

    Is he calling in to the PRO Cathedral? I can’t think of any reason to close the city centre for a Phoenix Park gig.
