Motorists travelling to the event from Dublin on the M50 should use the M11 to Enniscorthy/Wexford Road. Anybody using the M7 / M9 are advised to follow signs and exit at Junction 5 (Carlow), Junction 7 (Paulstown) or Junction 8 (Kilkenny)

Motorists using the M9 Southbound are advised not to continue to Waterford as this may lead to traffic congestion due to anticipated heavy volumes of traffic travelling to the event from the Munster region through Waterford.
