There is also a road closure in place at the Market Square from 9am to accommodate the Family Fun Area which will incorporate the Market Square and Earl Street to create a safe and friendly family zone. The first aid station and missing child area are going to be positioned beside the Permanent TSB on Clanbrassil Street.
