Smithfield Horse Fair – Sunday 3rd April 2011

The horse fair is scheduled to take place in Smithfield on Sunday 3rd April 2011.

Dublin City Council has commenced work on Smithfield Plaza as part of the Smithfield Quarter Enhancement Scheme.

As a result of these works over 50% of the space normally occupied by the Horse Fair will not be available on Sunday 3rd April 2011.

Dublin City Council appeals to the organisers of the Horse Fair and those who plan to attend the Horse Fair not to do so on this coming Sunday.

The works to Smithfield Plaza are scheduled to continue for several more months and will result in disruption to the holding of the Horse Fair for this period.

This request is supported by an Garda Síochána and is issued in the interest of public safety.
