Fans travelling to All Ireland semi-final clash asked to follow instructions of the gardaí

Fans travelling to the All Ireland semi-final clash between Dublin and Mayo are being asked to follow the instructions of the gardaí when leaving the stadium this afternoon.

Up to 80,000 people are expected to attend the game at GAA headquarters in what is the largest event taking place in Europe today.

More than 100 gardaí will be on duty.

Inspector Tony Gallagher of Mountjoy garda station advised anyone planning to meet family or friends after the match not to pick Jones Road as a meeting point.

"If you have a plan to meet anyone, stay in the stadium for a half an hour or 40 minutes first," he said, as the crowds will have thinned out by then.
