Seeing as the official EP09 website seems more interested in using its News section to pimp stuff that people have no interest in going to, here’s the update on the traffic for anyone planning to head to Stradbally later today. All news from AA Roadwatch at 1.30pm.

Very heavy southbound on the M7/Naas Rd with delays from J16 Carlow to the Bloomfield R/A.

Bus Eireann are reporting travel times of 1.5hrs from Dublin city centre.

There is also a 45 min delay northbound through Abbeyleix and it’s very congested around Stradbally.

A number of carparks have been relocated following heavy rain in recent days and there has been a last minute change to the traffic plan as a result.

Motorists on the N8 towards Abbeyleix will continue onto the N7/Portlaoise Bypass and join the Dublin and Limerick traffic, exiting at J16 Carlow (Ballydavis Interchange). From there, motorists will head towards the Bloomfield R/A, meeting up with the Portlaoise traffic. Gardai are directing motorists in two directions, towards the Lamberton jct and towards Stradbally on the N80.

Long delays can also be expected on the N80 Portlaoise/ Carlow Rd, the Abbeyleix/Stradbally Rd (R425/427) and in Stradbally Village.

Traffic lights are out of action on Main St in Abbeyleix on the N8 Dublin/Cork Rd. Gardai are on point duty, approach with care.

We’ve reached the Daily Ticket office after a few minor delays due to all of the above so give yourself plenty of time and allow for delays. No fuming, y’all.
