Munster final on June 22nd also. Throw in time not confirmed yet for that game and will be live on RTE. Could be 5pm then one of the 7pm round 2 ties will be live on SKY, this game or the Monaghan v Armagh one.

Munster Final 22 June in Páirc Uí Chaoimh:  Minor final 4:30pm, Senior final 7pm...both games Cork v Kerry

GAA.ie need to update their website so.



Munster GAA run the fixtures, not Croke Park.

Take a look here for the fixture:

Don't really care about this.

You’re always in with a shout, Down’s home form is nothing to write home about  ;D

We could both pretend this is a turning point in our season and who ever wins will be serious All Ireland contenders.
You are the single most joyless individualon on this board.

Personally looking forward to how the team takes shape and responds to the Ross loss. Will enjoy the journey for what it is and where it takes us however short or long.

Another “divisive and mean spirited” comment!

I see Newry train station is a handy 50 minute walk from the field. WTF?  - are there shuttle buses into the City Centre?

Thanks to the Brits building train stations on the outside of towns so their troops could organise at the train station without being ambushed in a town centre.

There’s a shuttle bus to the bus depot. You can walk (10-15 mins) from there or get another bus.

I'd have thought it was much shorter than that unless you've a feed of drink in you.

LOL-like the time in Limerick the “shuttle busses” dropping people off a mile from the stadium and then nowhere to be found after the game

I've done it a few times before and would have thought from memory it was more like 15/20 minutes.

Thanks, just in case, is there by any chance a Newry Bikes scheme?

It's 1.2miles - so about 20 min walk

Down are in the final of the Christy Ring cup at 2pm in Croke Park - could be the reason for the 7pm game in Newry?

For then Armagh match in the Ulster Championship at Pairc Esler there were shuttle buses running from the train station to the ground and also from the Quays/Buttercrane car parks to the match. I'm sure with the crowd expected they will be running something similar.

This used to be called Bessbrook station, a touch of the Ryanair there.
The real Newry station closed in 1965.
In any case the walk would be downhill on the way in, it is coming back you need the bus.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Anyone travelling by public transport from Dublin is as well get the coach as far as I can make out unless you're staying the night .
