It’s that time of year again when the finest long-distance runners from Ireland and beyond, as well as hundreds of novices, put the rest of us couch potatoes to shame by competing in the Dublin Marathon.

Taking place this Bank Holiday Sunday, the focus for the participants this week will doubtless be to ensure that they’re in peak physical condition for the starting line. For everyone else though, there’s the small matter of citywide road closures which could put a spanner in your weekend works. So, what do we need to know?

Firstly, the marathon route can be viewed in the below map…

What does that mean for motoring around Dublin then? Well, from 7pm on Friday until 4pm on Monday, Merrion Square North will be closed to traffic. Merrion Square South, meanwhile, will be out of action from 6pm on Saturday until 8pm on Sunday. And that’s only the beginning.

Dublin City Council has released a list of road closures as long as your arm for Sunday and it covers a pretty significant chunk of Dublin. Ready? Here goes…
