Thousands of fans in Dublin for All Ireland

Published 21/09/2008

Thousands of football fans travel to Dublin today for the All-Ireland final.

Kerry take on Tyrone in Croke Park.

With an expected crowd of over 82 thousand people Gardai are asking fans to arrive in good time, park responsibly and not cause obstruction.

A cordon will be in place around the Croke Park area from early this morning and Gardai will be on point duty.

People are being advised not to leave property exposed in parked vehicles and ensure that car windows and sunroofs are fully closed.

There will be strict Garda searches on the way into Croke Park and supporters will not be allowed bring with them any air horns, flares or bottles of alcohol.

Meanwhile Gardai say they will not allow people to drink on the streets, either outside pubs or walking along.

They are asking fans to have consideration for local residents and refrain from anti-social behaviour.
