  • July 28th Clare vs Galway       5.00pm
  • July 29th Limerick vs Cork      3.30pm

We advise all passengers intending on travelling to the above fixtures to allow sufficient time when making their reservation for the large volumes of traffic using the M7 on the dates which will likely result in extended journey times.

In addition there are ongoing road works on a section of this route which may impact travel time and are beyond our control.

We urge all supporters to book the earliest possible service and hope that all have an enjoyable day in Croke Park!
