Next week's Royal visit is set to cause traffic chaos for northsiders.
Drivers won’t be able to access the N2 Finglas Road for a number of hours next Friday, May 12th, when Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, visit Glasnevin Cemetery.
Locals had hit out at Dublin City Council after the local authority initially planned to close off the road from 7am until 1pm. However, after an angry response they decided to keep the road open until 9am to minimise disruption.
After that, drivers will be diverted onto local roads like Prospect Avenue, Botanic Road and the Old Finglas Road. Some Dublin Bus routes will also be diverted as a result.
Dublin’s Lord Mayor Brendan Carr has defended the closure of the Finglas Road, saying it's a security issue.
"When you get someone of the importance of the Royal Family coming into the city, we have to ensure that that person, no matter who it is, feels safe and is safe but at the same time trying to keep the local community ... not interrupt their life too much as well".
