Traffic and Parking Information for the Connacht GAA Final in Pearse Stadium Salthill this Sunday 5th May

On behalf of Galway GAA and the Pearse Stadium Committee we welcome all GAA Supporters to Salthill on Sunday next, the 5th of May 2024 for the Galway v Mayo Connacht Senior Football Championship Final.

The game on Sunday will attract a capacity attendance and will result in increased volumes of traffic in the Galway, Salthill and Pearse Stadium areas and we urge all Supporters to arrive early, in order to avoid traffic congestion and potential delays entering the Stadium.

This is an all ticket game and no tickets will be available to purchase at the grounds on the day. Tickets can be purchased on line and in Centra and SuperValu Supermarkets in advance of the game. Please have your tickets available for scanning as you approach the Stadium.

An Garda Síochana will implement a local area Traffic Management Plan from 1.00pm and this will result in a number of access roads in the residential areas adjacent to Pearse Stadium being closed.

It is important to note that only residents with some form of identification and those with Official Car Park Passes will be allowed access to those Residential areas.

Reminder also that there are ongoing traffic restrictions in operation in the Claddagh Quay area of the city adjacent to the Claddagh Church and patrons are advised to avoid this area after the game.

Turnstiles will be open for the Terraces at the Main Entrance on Rockbarton Road and Arus Bóthar na Trá on Dr. Mannix Road. Entry to the Stand is via the gates at the back of the stand.

All Gates will open at 2.30pm.


There are ample Car Parks in Galway City and Salthill and we encourage patrons to use these car parks and walk or take public transport to/from Salthill.

Car Parking will be available to the public at (Colaiste Éinde) St. Enda’s Secondary School on Threadneedle road. H91 X798 and at the Tennis Club also on Threadneedle Road. H91 E622

Again, we ask all Supporters to arrive early, to park in the designated Car Parks and to park legally and responsibly, at all times.

Finally, we appeal to all Supporters to be conscious, mindful and respectful to the needs of our neighbours and local residents.
