This video of the new Páirc Uí Chaoimh will have Cork GAA fans absolutely buzzing
Cork GAA fans, settle yourselves.
The All-Ireland hurling quarter-finals were finally confirmed for Páirc Uí Chaoimh last Monday after what had seemed like an eternity, for Cork supporters especially, waiting for the stadium to re-open.
The €70 million redevelopments of the home of Cork GAA commenced in 2015, and was projected to be completed in time for the Munster football and hurling deciders of this year, but the rebuilding job didn't meet those dates.
The stadium will reopen this Wednesday for an intermediate clash between Blarney and Valley Rovers GAA.
The last game held at the stadium was the 2014 Munster football final in which Kerry defeated Cork by 0-24 to 0-12.
The new stadium, which has a capacity of 45'000, will host the hurling quarter-finals between Tipperary and Clare on Saturday 22nd and Wexford and Waterford on 23rd July.
One might ask why those seats are black and white, instead of red and white, but other than that the stadium can't be faulted.

It's a far cry from when those developments began, that's for sure.
All roads lead to Cork for the 22nd July.
