Local Residents Access to Road Closures
Every effort will be made to discourage illegal parking in residential estates and on side streets. Barriers, signage, street cones and event-dedicated towing service will be in operation. In order to help us with these efforts, An Garda Síochána & Stewards will be accepting the following for local access:
- Driving Licence with householder’s address displayed
Our Traffic Management Plan Section here has more updated information on road closures, and traffic restrictions and our ‘Getting Here’ section here has motorist travel advice.
There will be dedicated car parks available for visitors over the two-day event. We make every effort to encourage visitors travelling by car to the #BrayAirDisplay to use these facilities. We encourage travel by public transport as a more efficient means of getting to and from the display.
Please note that as the surrounding roads are public motorway, #BrayAirDisplay organisers are not responsible for the enforcement of road regulations.
An Garda Síochána & Stewards
Over the two days, An Garda Síochána and Stewards will assist with the flow of traffic through the town.
