Where We Sported And Played- Pairc Ui Chaoimh
Pairc Ui Caoimh stadium, home to Cork GAA
Pairc Ui Caoimh a Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) stadium in the Ballintemple area of Cork in Ireland, where major hurling and Gaelic football matches are played and home of Cork GAA. The stadium had an original capacity of about 50,000, however, this capacity has been progressively reduced because of safety regulations to the current figure of 43,500.
I’m used to large crowds there on sunny Sundays in the summer and seeing Cork win another hurling game. I was walking with Conor, my son there a weekend over the summer and was allowed into the stadium to have a wander around. I know it’s an old stadium but I was amazed at how basic the changing rooms are (see 2nd last photo).
Below the last photograph I have a link to the rest of my photographs of Pairc Ui Chaoimh.
