European Cup Rugby and The Aussies are Coming

By Elaine O’Sullivan

 Heineken Cup action is back with a bang this weekend with two very exciting home fixtures to look forward to.

Leinster will play Castres Olympique at the RDS on Saturday with kick off at 3:40pm. Delays are likely through Ballsbridge; but the heaviest traffic is likely on Merrion Rd.

Then at 6pm Munster take on Gloucester at Thomond Park in Limerick. A Garda cordon will be in place from around 3pm around the stadium and diversions will operate.

Then the heart-warming, colour spectacular that is Priscilla Queen of the Desert continues its run at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre over the weekend. Doors open at 6:30pm for the show at 7:30pm on Friday and Saturday; however there will be no show on Sunday. Delays are likely on Macken St as a result.

Don’t forget our local sporting hero’s get set for the return of the International Rules Series which kicks off this weekend with a trip to Breffni Park in Cavan as Ireland takes on the Aussies on Saturday at 7pm. Traffic is likely to be heavy throughout Cavan Town and on approach routes. 

A busy sport-filled weekend is ahead but to make sure you don’t get stuck in traffic, keep an eye on aaroadwatch.ie or follow @aaroadwatch on Twitter.
