I think most people will be looking to get out of there fairly sharpish after the match.


Why?

 
Because it's a sh*t hole.


Except it isn't


Correct.

No panic booking beds for belfast, I'd imagine out of an allocation of 900, some of those live in Belfast and others will commute back. 
time is the stuff that life is made of, don't waste it.

I'd imagine the PSNI will want to arrange something like that i.e. all fan buses meet at Dundalk and get escorted from there. Will be trickier for people coming from the North.

My brother lives about a 15 minute walk away, ffs. If I have to be bussed back to Dublin, it'll be a right pain in the hole.

Though, of course, I would happily take it, in exchange for qualification.

I know, and they make it seem like ages away.
We travel from Belfast to Dublin and back for every home game, it's really not that hard.

It is hard if your only mode of transportation is a wheel barrow

No one is complaining that it is difficult to get to. What is annoying is if they impose severe restrictions on travel; it is nonsense if people have to drive from Belfast to Dundalk to get a bus back to Belfast, or if people have to be bussed back to Dublin the same night, arriving back in Dublin after midnight. What about fans who live in Cork, Kerry, Donegal and the like? There could well be restrictions which cause more inconvenience than they remove. No one wants to see needless, annoying restrictions.

I've travelled home north from Dublin on the same night plenty of times with my folks and it's fine but if that sort of late night travel can be avoded, especially if it is relatively needless for a lot of people, that would be great.

If they have to do it, Sprucefield would probably be the best, as a medium, with buses to & from Dublin for those who want them.

I would say the chances of them imposing these kinds of restrictions this time around is about 20%.

If you couple that with about a 10% likelihood both NI and ROI win their respective semi finals, that's about a 2% chance of this happening.

Why is it sh*t hole then?
People are always whinging about a particular place being a kip.
