Travel advice issued to supporters heading to Páirc Uí Chaoimh this weekend
It's going to be wedged at the weekend.
July 22-23 is going to be a busy weekend of sport down in Cork as the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship Quarter-Finals are taking place.
The newly developed Páirc Uí Chaoimh will host the two SHC quarter-final games. Defending champions Tipperary face Clare on Saturday and Waterford and Wexford play each other on Sunday.
A sell-out crowd is expected for both games meaning the city is going to be jammed for two days and travel advice has been issued to all four sets of supporters who are travelling at the weekend. All who head along are definitely in for a treat:
