Translink are working to provide an extra train service for Armagh GAA fans travelling to Croke Park on Sunday week.

Posting an update on Twitter, Sinn Fein’s Infrastructure Minister John O’Dowd added: “Your efforts are appreciated by all Armagh fans”.

Armagh will face Galway next Sunday for the All-Ireland quarter-final having defeated Donegal last week.

Looking ahead to the Galway clash, Armagh’s assistant manager Kieran Donaghy said: “We are working very hard right now because we know we will be coming up against the cream of the crop.

"I think we got the toughest draw we could get in having to meet Tyrone and Donegal and now Galway will be waiting for us at Croke Park.

“This is as difficult as it can get. Last Sunday in particular the crowd in the Athletic Grounds inspired the players and helped them to build up our total of 3-17.

"Now we will be looking for those same supporters to get behind the lads in Croke Park.

"We will certainly need all the encouragement we can get and we hope to repay the fans by turning in another winning performance.”

Further information on how to travel to the game by rail is available on the Translink website.
