Gardaí urge Ploughing patrons from South East to follow official traffic route to event

People from the South East regions attending the National Ploughing Championships are urged to follow official traffic routes set out by Gardaí.

As large crowds are expected to attend, Gardaí advise anyone travelling to allow additional journey time, and to follow directional signage and instructions of Gardaí along the routes. 

Motorists are advised to ignore directions on Sat Nav devices and to instead follow the specific directions of signs, Gardaí and stewards. 

People from Waterford and Kilkenny can avail of the Grey Route, which takes motorists through Castlecomer and Timahoe Village towards Moneycross. 

Those with a vehicle pass are asked to make sure it is clearly displayed on the front window.

Other colour-coded routes include Blue for those travelling from Cork/Munster, Brown for traffic travelling from Limerick/Kerry/South West, Green for West/North West, Purple for Dublin/Leinster/the North, and Yellow for Carlow/South East as well as Grey for Kilkenny/South East.
