Here's everything you need to know about getting to Westlife's Croke Park gigs

Planning on heading to Croker this weekend?

We were over the moon when it was announced that Westlife would be reuniting - and even moreso when they announced they were heading back on tour.

Tickets for the original Croke Park dates were snapped up super quickly when they went on sale last October - and, again, when extra tickets were released back in February.

But after what feels like forever, Westlife's two Croke Park gigs are just around the corner.

This Friday and Saturday, to be exact..

If you're planning on heading along to either of the gigs this weekend, here's everything you need to know about getting to Croke Park.
