What's the nessecity to move Emergency vehicles? Surely emergency vehicles will be exempted from any traffic restrictions.

inorite? All this talk and bragging that public transport will get you to and from the mass in this super large attempt at showcasing it's usefulness - and then they pretty much cut off most non-specialised public transport from the cordon area anyway.

Utter genius

If one compares the numbers of those catered for in 1979,and the extremely effective Public Transport arrangements back then,one could be forgiven for asking whether they bothered to keep the 1979 plan on file ?
Back in 1979 they opened up closed rural stations for the day.

Elf and safety and litigation is gone mad compared to 1979 though.

Back in 1979 most of the Dublin 15 bus routes were cancelled for the day.

The big issue here is that the Navan road is closed beyond the M50 roundabout for the day (not sure about local access) I'm not sure what other options there are other than via finglas

This is a disaster for me, currently working in retail and the shop is going to close all weekend, the busiest days. Not impressed.

Why is it closing? Where is it located?

Almost all Dublin Bus routes are working as normal on both Saturday and Sunday, or in many cases a better service. The city centre is open both days, albeit with some security stops and rolling road closures. It will be sort of like Patrick's day.
No reason for any except a small number of businesses located very close to Papal hotspots to close.

I'd say the Tesco on the Navan road will struggle , presuming that it opens.

All buses from blanchardstown/castleknock /Meath will run via the M50 and finglas to the city.

There's also a lot of road closures in the city on the day .

I suppose it depends what business you are in, but there will be tens of thousands of people walking along Kylemore.
