The 3rd 2023 Fingal Scatter event takes place in DCU/Albert College Park, next Sunday 10th September.
Due to the popularity of the park on Sundays, there will be very few parking spaces available in the car park at the back of Albert College Park, but the multi-storey car park in DCU, accessible from Collins Ave, will have plenty of space. It costs €1 per hour. Make your away directly across the campus from the car park through the side gate of Albert College Park to the registration area in front of the tennis courts here https://goo.gl/maps/9i9GzAHPSS2vxp6n8.
For those using public transport, the numbers 9, 4, 13 and 155 buses go up Ballymun Road and stop across from the DCU Ballymun Road entrance. There are toilets available in the area around the Tram Cafe at the back of the park. The cafe is open on Sundays. Registration, start, and finish will be at the south end of the path from the tennis courts to the main park avenue.
