Cork GAA venue set for €22m redevelopment

Cork Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) has unveiled plans for a €22 million refurbishment of Pairc Ui Chaoimh.

Under the plans the stadium's capacity will increase from 43,500 to 45,000. The plans also include the development of new dressing rooms, medical facilities, meeting and conference rooms, media facilities and an all-weather training pitch.

A planning application for the redevelopment is expected to be lodged with the city council in October and, depending on the outcome, it is predicted that the project will take two years to complete.

Pairc Ui Chaoimh is home to both the Cork hurling and its Gaelic football teams and it is expected that the teams’ home fixtures will be played at the nearby Páirc Uí Rinn during the redevelopment process.
