Will there be cars on the road?

  • A legal road closure will be in place during TriAthy so the course is not open to normal vehicular traffic.
  • TriAthy is one of the few triathlon races in Ireland that have 36km of fully closed routes for our bike course.
  • It is possible that you will encounter a vehicle, but it should be an exceptional circumstance only.
  • You will share the road with other race entrants and you are obliged to observe the normal rules of the road.
  • Please note that there will be roaming motor bike officials and Gardai on the course.
  • In special circumstances, ambulances or local emergency traffic may have to briefly enter onto the course to deal with an unexpected event.
  • In all situations... the rules of the road will apply.

I'm a local resident and need to make a journey on the day of the event.

  • Road Closures will be in place in the area on 1st June 2019.
  • Further details will be posted on the TriAthy website approx 6 weeks before raceday.

Which roads are closed during the event?

  • We will list which roads and at what times that these roads will be closed as the event approaches.
  • Please be sure to plan your journey carefully, the road closures will add time to your travel.

How will the roads be closed?

  • Road will be closed in conjunction with the Local Authority and Garda Siochana using cones, barriers and traffic management personnel, supplemented by motor cycle marshals.
  • This will create a traffic free environment for the entire event thereby enhancing event safety and improving the overall experience for our competitors.

What happens in an emergency?

  • Please be advised that road closures DO NOT affect the blue light services, and a member of each will be with us at Race Control during the event so we can respond quickly and efficiently to any emergency call-out.
