Text of email from Chairperson LADRA regarding community support during the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic (No. 1)

 To All LADRA Members.


Hello All,

In light of this Coronavirus, the potential health implications and the government restrictions imposed on all of us,  I would like to inform you that a group of neighbours have volunteered to help  vulnerable/at risk neighbours in the LADRA community area to get shopping, medication etc if needed.  2 people have also offered to walk dogs if required.

Therefore if you need any help over the next few weeks with anything, or you are willing to help your neighbours if needed please let me know.

Please spread the word of this volunteering offer to your neighbours who might not be members of LADRA.

Take care of yourselves and your families over the next few weeks.

Kind Regards,


Chairperson, LADRA

Dear Householder,

 I am writing to you in relation to the up-coming EURO 2020 match against Denmark on 18th November. Ahead of Dublin’s hosting of the UEFA EURO 2020 Finals in June, the Dublin Local Organising Structure made up of FAI, Dublin City Council, the Department of Transport Tourism and Sport and Aviva Stadium in conjunction with An Garda Siochana, the National Transport Authority and Iarnród Éireann, will embark on a trial operation exercise on the 18th. The purpose of the exercise is to examine logistics, mobility, safety, security and stadium access.

 Let me say at the outset that the fact you are living in the area will be totally respected so in a sense nothing will change for you in terms of access / egress with the exception of the DART as below.

 Central to the exercise will be the temporary closure of the Lansdowne DART Station for a five and a half hour period on Monday 18th November  from 5.30pm to 11.00pm.

 The games organisers will be mounting an information campaign in advance of the game to inform both normal users off the DART and also fans going to the game. As the DART will not be stopping at Lansdowne Road Station people will be reminded to either use Grand Canal Dock or Sandymount stations. Regular users of the Lansdowne Road Station and match ticket holders are encouraged to visit www.euro2020.fai.ie where details on this exercise and FAQs can be found.  

 Dublin has not hosted an event of this magnitude before and all aspects of the preparation including this exercise are being developed to ensure the safety and security of citizens, football fans, and visitors to our city. The UEFA EURO 2020 tournament in Dublin will see different profiles, different dynamics, different mobility patterns and different ticketing systems in place compared to normal international fixtures. UEFA has made a recommendation to increase the size of the Outer Perimeter in order to ensure there is no congestion in areas around the Aviva Stadium ahead of the 4 games scheduled to be played at the Aviva Stadium in June 2020.

 The Republic of Ireland v Denmark match  was selected for this exercise to create a live test scenario with spectator numbers similar to those expected for one in the UEFA EURO 2020 Finals Tournament. The access procedures will remain the same but fans using the Green, Red and Purple access routes into the Aviva Stadium will go through an amended ticket and security check featuring additional barriers on their route to the Aviva Stadium. Fans using the Blue and Orange access routes will remain unaffected.

 If you do have any queries in relation to the above you can contact Killian Keys (killian.keys@ogilvy.com / 086-1024302) or Kate FitzGerald (kate.fitzgerald@ogilvy.com / 086-3873083)
