Kilkenny fans travelling to Ennis on Sunday for the big National Hurling League match against Clare have been advised they can park safely in a convenient place, and by doing so they will help local charities.
The local Lions Club has invited people to help boost their fund raiser and avoid hassle when attending the match.
Cusack Park, they point out, is part of the town centre infrastructure in Ennis and as such is not readily accessible for cars or buses on match days.
With a large crowd anticipated for Sunday’s game, there will be serious parking restrictions in the vicinity of the stadium. The Lions Club of Ennis have put plans in place to accommodate up to 500 vehicles in the Clare marts site (EIRCODE V95 APF2) on the Quin Road, just past Ennis Railway Station.
This hard surface car park will be open from 10.30am to 5pm and will be signposted on the approaches to Ennis Town Centre.
The mart is just over a 10 minute walk to Cusack Park. In addition easy access to the M18 motorway is available after the game to avoid the traffic congestion exiting Ennis.
The M7/M18 motorway route via the Limerick tunnel makes a comfortable 75 minutes drive from the Borris-in-Ossory junction to Ennis.
Cars park for €5, mini buses for €10 and coaches for €20. All proceeds go to local charities.
