As gig day approaches here are some updates
Firstly I lost my phone so please note I’m contactable on a different number: [masked]
Gates open at 15:00hrs
TVVINS – 15.45hrs
Ham Sandwich – 16.45
Pixies – 18:30hrs
Arcade Fire – 20.30hrs
Get the LUAS to Ballally, walk up Wyckham Way and then down Ballinteer Avenue. Couple of pubs on the way should you get thirsty it’s a 25 minute walk or less
There are diversions on the 14 bus route but I don’t think they kick in until after Rathfarnham
Each of the 14, 14a, and 48a all bring you close to Marlay Park also, dropping you at Broadford Road in Ballinteer, 10 minutes walk from the Park. NOTE that the 16a leaves you 35 minutes away in Rathfarnham.
The 14, 14a, 48a and 16 all serve the same stops in Upper O'Connell Street (outside Burger King) and D'Olier Street. At 3pm they should take about 35/40 minutes to get out to Ballinteer.
The 75 will also bring you to Broadford Road in Ballinteer from either Tallaght or Dun Laoghaire.
Timetables for them all are at:
Plan is to meet up in waves early doors at
3pm and later wave after 5pm
First wave is meeting in The Eden House – Grange Rd Rathfarnham from 3pm. The first band is on at 3:45pm and it is around a 20 min walk from the pub to the gig.
Second wave is meeting in The Eden House at 5pm and will head in from there.
If you don’t make it to Eden for either of these times we will meet up inside the venue
There is actually a meeting point at concerts in Marlay Park – I won’t know where it is until I’m actually there. Ask on the way in and I will also try to post it to Meetup.
I’m only interested in The Pixies and Arcade Fire so if we haven’t already made contact I will be at the meeting point inside Marlay Park from 17:45 – 18:00. Will try and find a good spot in preparation for The Pixies after that time and will post where I am.
Eden House Location:
I think it will all be over circa 22:30
There might be special bus services laid on for the return journey into town – I couldn’t find any info on this.
