Tens of thousand of people are expected to descend on Limerick later today as the #LimerickGiant departs the city following her three day journey.

So far, around 150,000 people have witnessed the giant granny as she made her way around the city visiting key landmarks and streets.

Gardai say that more than 100,000 people flocked to the city yesterday amid glorious sunshine and that huge crowds are expected again today.

After making her way from Shelbourne Park, where she slept last night, to the Treaty Stone, Granny will head to Brian Boro Square via Clancy Strand, Sarsfield Bridge, Patrick Street, Rutland Street and Mathew Bridge.

There will then be a procession back to Sarsfield Bridge where Granny will be lowered onto the river Shannon and depart by boat.

Gardai are advising members of the puplic to use one of the Park and Ride or Park and Walk facilities as traffic restrictions will be in place until the early evening.
