For the safety and enjoyment of all attending, An Garda Siochana and Dublin Pride request that Pride patrons leave bags at home on parade day.
In line with standard protocol for all recent events, backpacks and large bags will not be allowed. Only small bags measuring no bigger than A5 (14.8 × 21 cm, 5.8in x 8.2in) will be permitted into both St. Stephens Green South and Smithfield Square.
There will of course be exceptions made for people with medical conditions and children, but for the sake of everybody’s safety, all bags will be thoroughly searched
This is also an alcohol and drug free event.
