Shane MacGowan funeral: Gardaí confirm traffic restrictions in Dublin and Tipperary |



A number of traffic restrictions will be put in place in Dublin city centre and Nenagh, Co Tipperary for the funeral of Shane MacGowan on Friday.

The Pogues frontman died last week in Dublin.

Gardaí said there will be traffic restrictions in Dublin on Friday morning as MacGowan’s funeral cortège passes through the inner-city.

The procession will begin at St Lotts road at around 11am, crossing MacMahon Bridge and continuing on to Pearse Street. It will travel to the junction at Lombard Street, turning on to Westland Row, then Fenian Street, before concluding at Denzille Lane at around 11.45am.

MacGowan’s funeral Mass will be held on Friday at 3.30pm at St Mary’s of the Rosary Church in Nenagh, where traffic restrictions will also be in place in anticipation of large crowds.

Following the Mass, the funeral cortège will pass through Nenagh town, travelling from Church Road to Market Cross, with traffic restrictions in place throughout the duration of the funeral.

Gardaí said Church Road will be closed from 8am to 7pm on Friday, while there will also be restrictions on Kenyon Street, Pearse Street and in the town centre from 2pm to 7pm.

Extra parking facilities have also been put in place, including at Éire Óg Nenagh GAA club, the old Procter & Gamble factory in Gortlandroe, at Nenagh Liverstock Mart on Strafford Street, and at Nenagh College on Dromin Road.
