The GAA would ask all patrons attending the Allianz Football League game Down v Donegal to co-operate fully with all parking and traffic arrangements being put in place for the fixture at Pairc Esler.
The game has a 7.00pm throw in and we would ask patrons to get to the ground on time, turnstiles will open from 5.30pm and the Down GAA ticket van will have tickets on sale from 5.00pm.
There will be no parking permitted on the dual carriageway, in the interests of the safety of our patrons we would ask that people attending the game use either the car parks within the centre of Newry or park in the Greenbank Industrial Estate.
With the co-operation of the PSNI and Traffic Planning Consultants we will be operating a two lane system to exit Greenbank at the end of the game. Traffic going to the South Down area should exit in the right hand lane proceeding down the dual carriageway and travelling home via Warrenpoint/Rostrevor. Traffic going South or to the Greater Belfast area should exit in the left hand lane from Greenbank proceeding through Newry onto the motorway at Cloghogue. Priority on exit routes will be given to those patrons who park in Greenbank as we try to ensure that all patrons get to and from the game safely. Our priority is the safety of our patrons and we thank you in anticipation for your co-operation.
We would also ask that patrons respect the private properties within the area of Pairc Esler and do not cause obstruction to local residences.
