The official welcome will take place on a stage on the South Mall at its junction with Parnell Place at 8pm.


Major Diversions will be in place from 2.30pm to 10.00pm to facilitate the Cork Homecoming of the Munster Rugby Team.


All city centre routes will be affected by road closures. Diversions will be in place on all city centre roads from 7.00pm. No entry signs will be in place from 7.00pm.

NOTE: Parnell Bridge (Northbound) will be closed from 2.30pm.


Black Ash Park and Ride will operate until 9.30pm. City Terminus will be at Eglinton Street instead of Lapp’s Quay from 2.30pm. Patrons are encouraged to use this facility.


There will be No Parking permitted on the South Mall from Morrison Street to Parnell Place (both sides), and on Parnell Place from the South Mall to Oliver Plunkett Street (both sides) from 1.00pm. Clamping and Tow Away will be enforced rigorously in the event of parking violations.
