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. Pairc Ui Caoimh 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 in Pairc Ui Caoimh on sunny Sundays in the summer and seeing Cork win another hurling or football 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 Pairc Ui Caoimh is an old stadium but I was amazed at how basic the changing rooms are (see 2nd last photo).
