NO MORE LARGE BAGS AND BACKPACKS IN CROKE PARK’S SAFETY REGULATION CHANGES
Earlier today, the GAA announced details of new safety regulations in Croke park which will come into effect this Sunday, June 25th, ahead of Dublin’s Leinster Senior Football Semi Final game against Westmeath.
This new regulation has been created after a review of the stadium’s safety procedures. The move is similar in ways to regulations brought in by the Aviva Stadium recently were a “no bag policy” was introduced for the Republic Of Ireland’s international fixtures against Uruguay and Austria.
GAA Supporters and concert goers will be encouraged to bring no bags to the stadium, however small bags no bigger than standard A4 size (8.27in/21cm × 11.7/ 29.7cm) will be permitted but their contents may be searched on entry. Large bags and backpacks will no longer be permitted in the ground under any circumstances.
The GAA issued a statement that reads: “Following a review of safety procedures with the relevant statutory authorities, Croke Park can confirm that as of Sunday, 25 June 2017, patrons will not be permitted to take large bags and backpacks into the stadium for all match day and concert events.
“Smaller bags will be permitted but may be subject to searches and patrons are urged not to bring bags at all where possible.”
We’d like to make as many people aware of this as possible ahead of this Sunday’s Leinster Senior Football Semi Final, so please reach out the fellow Dublin supporters and pass on the information as best you can.
