Thousands of people are expected to visit the “Olympics of Shearing” which runs until Sunday.
The latest on the traffic situation is that the car park opposite the Knockmullen site is now full, however the car park at the Ballycanew roundabout is open as is the car park between Tesco and Dunnes Stores.
Bus transport is operating from the Ballycanew car park to Knockmullen.
