U2 play the final show of their four-night run at the 3 Arena this evening but it’s not the only major event happening in town.
Over at the Aviva Stadium, Ireland’s rugby team will be playing host to Argentina and, as usual with sporting events at Lansdowne Road, there will be a number of road closures in place.
Given the proximity of the 3 Arena to the Aviva, the traffic restrictions will like affect U2 fans as well and the Gardaí have issued a statement which outlines what you need to know if you’re heading along to the gig.
Those attending the U2 concert in the 3 arena tonight please note that road closures will be in place throughout the day in the areas around the Aviva Stadium as Ireland take on Argentina in the November Series.
