The second test of the International Rules series in Croke Park is a sell-out, it emerged today.

Over 82,000 fans will be at the game next Sunday, a record for any international sports match in Ireland.

The GAA revealed that Hill 16 will be at full capacity after works were completed.

Gardaí said they have arranged for parking facilities for 50 coaches at Mountjoy Square East and Mountjoy Square South and drivers are being told to stay with their buses at all times.

Drop off points are also being set up at Mountjoy Square with extra coach parking available at Great Western Way near the former Wax Museum.

Turnstiles in Croke Park open at 11am with an Ireland V Scotland Hurling/Shinty game at 11.45am, followed by the Coca Cola International Rules Second Test at 2pm.

The GAA urged supporters not to invade the Croke Park pitch.

Fans are asked to attend early and to refer to the colour code on signage en route to the stadium and the plan on the back of tickets to ensure easy access.

Ireland won the first leg of the Coca Cola International Rules series 48 points to 40 at Pearse Stadium in Galway on Saturday evening giving them a fragile eight point lead going into the second game.
