There are over 120 parades taking place across the country today with the largest being in the capital.

Almost 500,000 people are expected to line the streets which has resulted in a host of traffic restrictions, road closures and changes to public transport timetables.

Here's everything you need to know:

DUBLIN BUS

A Sunday timetable will operate on all routes  today while City Tours, Coastal Tours and Ghostbus will not operate.

A full Nitelink service will operate tonight but there will be no Nitelink service on Monday.

Due to parades across Dublin - as well as Kildare - Dublin Bus routes may take a different journey than usual so that's something to look out for.

BUS ÉIREANN

Normal Sunday service with a number of cancellations and additional services.

LUAS

Green Line trams will only run from Brides Glen to St. Stephen’s Green and from Broombridge to Dominick until 6pm.
