Gardaí would urge any organisation that plan to protest to contact the local Superintendent in the area in advance in order to facilitate their peaceful protest.“Every effort will be made to minimise any disruption to the local community in carrying out their day to day business and activities in the border region. We will work closely other agencies and with everyone involved and seek the support of the community in cooperating with Gardai and stewards during the event.“At the present time there are no plans in place in respect of road closures or diversions in this jurisdiction.“We are advising persons residing or travelling through the Region, particularly in the areas of South Donegal, Leitrim, Cavan and Monaghan to be aware of the possibility of vehicle security checks on roads leading to the event site, to expect delays and to adjust their travel arrangements accordingly.
