The gardai have released their traffic plan for the Ironman event to be held in Youghal on Sunday 23rd June 2019.

Full details of the plan can be found here https://www.garda.ie/en/about-us/our-departments/office-of-corporate-communications/news-media/ironman-event-cork-23-june-2019.html

This is Ireland’s first full Ironman and has attracted almost 2,500 athletes, some of whom have arrived in Midleton this week. They are visiting local restaurants and bars and greatly adding to the craic in Midleton.

Local businesses may experience some disruption from the road closures. However, the event is expected to attract up to 10,000 spectators.

East Cork, including Midleton and Youghal welcomes these visitors. They  will provide a valuable lift to the local economy.
Businesses should roll out the red carpet for the athletes and their supporters. East Cork will benefit from this event for the next two years and it is a great opportunity to promote our region.
