Dr Hyde Park

  • Roscommon will play Down in Dr Hyde Park on Sunday next at 2pm. The game is being preceded by the Division 3 Ladies NFL Match between Roscommon and Meath which throws in at 12 noon.

    As there is a large crowd expected at the games patrons are asked to be considerate to others when parking their cars. A number of households have complained that their driveways were blocked by cars parking in front of gates during the Meath match.

    In addition, the Gardaí have stated that they ticketed a large number of cars which were parked on footpaths and others which were causing obstructions in housing estates.

    Roscommon town boasts year round free parking and there are sufficient public car parks around the town for all patrons to park safely.

    Patrons are urged to park legally and ensure that they do not obstruct any gate ways or park in a way that could prevent an emergency vehicle such as an ambulance or fire engine from gaining access to an incident.

  • A decision on whether or not Dr Hyde Park can stage the Connacht Senior Football Final will be made after this Saturday’s Connacht Senior Semi Final between Roscommon and Leitrim.

    A decision on the matter was deferred at a meeting of the Connacht Council last night.

    If Roscommon best Leitrim and Galway overcome Sligo next week, the rota system in place currently would mean the Final would usually be slated in for Dr Hyde Park.

    However reports yesterday suggest that the Roscommon venue could be in danger of losing the game due to concerns over the venue, including safety. Hyde Park currently has capacity for 18,000 supporters.

    No decision will be taken on the matter until after Saturday’s game.
