Road Closures

We are triAthlone which is a long standing sporting event that will be held this year on the weekend of the  8th  July. With this event it will see athletes take to the waters of the river shannon, take to the Roads of Athlone.  As a result of this it will be necessary to implement a road closure order on Friday 7th to Sunday 9th July 2017. 




To make the event as safe as possible for the athletes, spectators and residents it is necessary to close specific roads during certain periods of the event. These are as follows:
