of this great Hurling Day for many G.A.A. Patrons, as they will not have to

worry about traffic congestion or car parking on the day. I would appeal to all

users of this facility to arrive early at the G.M.I.T. Car Park in order to avail of

the specially arranged bus departures from G.M.I.T.. I wish everybody a

wonderful occasion in what promises to be two hectic games” concluded
