FANS HEADING TO Sunday’s sold-out All-Ireland football semi-final are being encouraged to arrive an hour before throw-in.

Old rivals Dublin and Kerry meet for the first time in the Championship since their nail-biting 2011 final.

The capacity crowd will be Croke Park’s first sell-out of the summer and GAA bosses are anxious to avoid any problems.

“The GAA and An Garda Síochána would like to inform patrons attending Sunday’s GAA Football All-Ireland semi-finals at Croke Park that Jones Road will only be open to patrons holding tickets for the Premium Level, Hogan Stand and Nally Terrace,” an advisory statement issued this afternoon read.

This means that the Hogan Stand entrance or the Croke Park hotel cannot be used as a meeting point for ticket exchange and collection etc by patrons holding tickets for other areas of the stadium.

Supporters are also advised to arrive one hour before the senior semi-final (minor-throw in 1.30; senior throw-in 3.30) to ensure that the expected capacity attendance is in situ before the start of the game.

Supporters are also reminded that this fixture has been sold out and no tickets will be on general sale on the day.
