Pairc Ui Chaoimh

Páirc Uí Chaoimh is a Gaelic games stadium in Cork, Ireland, home to Cork GAA. Pairc Ui Chaoimh stadium is located in Ballintemple and is built on the site of the original Cork Athletic Grounds. The venue opened in 1976, and underwent a significant redevelopment from 2015 to 2017. You can view images of the completed stadium on http://paircuichaoimh.ie/

I’m used to large crowds in Pairc Ui Caoimh on sunny summer Sundays seeing Cork yet win another hurling or football game (the glorious ’80s and ’90s). In 2011 I was walking with my son around the Atlantic Pond was allowed into the stadium to have a wander around. I know Pairc Ui Caoimh was opened in 1976, so you could call it an old stadium but I was still amazed at how small and dark the changing rooms were.
