Diversions due to closure of O'Connell Street

Published on Thursday, November 21, 2013

Dublin Bus wishes to advise customers that to facilitate the Tree Lighting Ceremony in O’Connell Street on Sunday 24th November 2013 between 14:00hrs and 20:00hrs, Dublin City Council will close O’Connell Street from the junction of O’Connell Bridge to Cathal Brugha Street in both directions.

In addition to the below diversions Route 7  will also be diverted from 07:00hrs to 15:00hrs as Parnell Square North will be closed to traffic due to the Irish Volunteers Centenary Commemoration which is taking place in the Garden of Remembrance. As a result Route 7 towards Mountjoy Square will be diverted from O’Connell Street to use Cathal Brugha Street, left to Marlboro Street, right to Parnell Street, left to Gardiner Street and back to the terminus at Mountjoy Square. This diversion will be in place until the Christmas tree lighting ceremony diversions begin at 14:00hrs.
