Traditional Irish Music
This year's Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann will take place in Drogheda, Co Louth on 12th - 19th August, and with it there is the opportunity for traditional music fan’s in the Dublin region to consider a day trip to the festival. In addition to public services which you can check out on Bus Éireann Matthews Coaches have announced a ten-trip ticket for fans.
“With 133 daily services between Dublin and the northeast, coach company Matthews.ie are making the journey up the M1 a breeze for thousands of music fans. Travelling by bus is the best way to get to Drogheda during the Fleadh,” said Matthews managing director, Paddy Matthews.
“As a Green Patron sponsor, we are asking as many people as possible to leave the car at home and travel to the Fleadh in comfort on our regular Dublin service. Our Drogheda service picks up on Cumberland Street North and stops in the heart of town, right in the centre of all the festival venues.For those looking to travel on multiple days, we have a great value ten-trip ticket for €60 that can be used on any day. Our ten-trip ticket can also be shared among family members or groups travelling together, which works out cheaper for you.”
From Monday 13 to Friday 17, Matthews.ie will service all stops as normal in and around Drogheda town. However, passengers are advised to expect delays as the week develops and more events commence. Delays will also affect Bettystown and Laytown due to high volumes of traffic expected in Julianstown and on the R132 to Drogheda. On Saturday, August 18 and Sunday, August 19, Matthews.ie will not stop at North Road or on George’s Street, in both directions, due to road closures. As a result, Matthews.ie will temporarily service Trinity Street via Cement Road, with a new stop on both sides of the road on Trinity Street at McCloskey’s Bakery. New signage will be in place at this location.”
A map with pinned locations will be available on the Matthews.ie Facebook page.
