While thousands of festival-goers appear to have had a great time at All Together Now this weekend, there's no getting away from the fact that one of the main talking points has been the traffic issues.
Some people spent the whole day in their cars on Friday and it seems like getting out of Curraghmore Estate is proving more difficult than getting in. A number of people have been sharing images of long traffic lines and it could be late tonight before some of them get home.

50 mins to move 300m. Standstill for the last 15 mins. Penny just hasn't dropped for organisers at #ATN19

Glad I didn’t get that family ticket now. The purgatory for a festival weekend should not include 10-15 hours cooked up in tailbacks. Stay strong fellow countrymen & women; you won’t die and you’re still good people! #ATN19 #AllTogetherNow

By all accounts, it was a great weekend otherwise so if organisers manage to iron out the traffic issues, music fans can looking forward to another great event next year.
