Travelling up from Dubin tomorrow morning to watch Blackrock SCT against Campbell College. Never having visited Campbell before I am looking for a bit of advice. Now I know Ravers is carefully hidden away in a maze of housing estates deliberately to get us visiting Leinster fans horribly lost and confused (I am yet to make KO on time for a Leinster match!) but I am hoping my journey tomorrow morning will be a bit easier.
Google maps is sending me into the city centre (A12) but I am a bit worried about getting stuck in Saturday morning traffic (KO is 11.30). The only way I can see to avoid the city centre seems to be to turn off at Lisburn onto the Hillhall Rd (b23), Belvoir Rd, Knock Rd but there looks like there could be a few busy junctions (Ormeau & Newtownards Rd).
Any advice?
Cheers and best of luck tonight. As long as your props can stop practising their boxing skills you should be ok!

The Hillhall road route is the one I would take, you cross those junctions at right angles to the main traffic flow so no problem especially on a Saturday morning

I think your plan is correct. After you cross the Newtownards road, turn right at next roundabout and the gates of Campbell are immediately on the right.

don't think you'll suffer too much with heavy traffic on that route on a saturday morning to be honest. If I were doing the journey I'd use the Hillhall road as you describe or else I'd follow the M1 to the end then follow the westlink to the M3 Bridge and out the Sydenham bypass. Enjoy the game!

Oi El, any chance you could take Jihad with you on the way back down? We don't need an inferior 13 being picked by Josef Schmidt, you Mexicans need him more than we do.

Maybe then we could set about picking our best team. :duh:

I'm with Mr Moore on this - on a sat morning, the M1-A12-M3-A2 (follow signs for City Airport) and then double back up the A55 should be nearly as quick and easier for someone who doesn't know the route. Multi-lane the whole way, so not as likely to get stuck behind some grumpy old farmer* as on the Hillhall Road.

*other types of famer exist, but that was last month.

I'm with Moore and BR.

M1 straight onto West link, at end of westlink hang left onto M3 following road signs to Bangor. After city airport follow signs for A55 Newtownards. You'll double back on yourself at a crazy junction that used to be roundabout, you'll see a big Tesco on the hill. (Watch out for Knocknagoney Mike). Follow the A55 as it sweeps round to left (called parkway). At final proper roundabout take left into Campbell. Easy.

Right up until there's a problem on it.

Jez, obviously divided opinions on this one! I think the consensus is the M3 is the safer bet in case of slow traffic on the Hillhall Road but either way should be fine. Thks again.

That's pretty much it - one is longer/faster speeds, the other is a bit more fiddly. Either should be grand.
