Must read

The PSNI has issued traffic and travel advice ahead of the Irish Cup Final between Cliftonville and Linfield, taking place at the National Stadium on Saturday, 04 May.

More than 14,000 supporters are expected to attend the match on what will be a busy bank holiday weekend. The Boucher Road is a thriving commercial area and will be busy with members of the public frequenting the area.

Supporters and shoppers are advised to plan their journey in advance, ensuring they leave sufficient travel time as congestion is likely in the area.

A build-up of traffic is to be expected in the M1, Donegall Road, and particularly the Boucher Road areas both before and after the game.

The PSNI have asked that those driving to the match park with consideration for local residents and businesses, and that supporters are respectful and considerate whilst walking through residential streets convenient to the stadium.

Police also highlighted that the areas around the National Stadium are ‘No Street Drinking’ zones under Belfast City Council by-laws and these by-laws should be complied with at all times.

The PSNI concluded: “We hope that the match is enjoyed by all and would remind those attending to behave in a manner befitting the reputation of their clubs.”
