Páirc Uí Chaoimh Opening Date Confirmed With All-Ireland Hurling Quarter-Finals

Páirc Uí Chaoimh

The opening games in the new Páirc Uí Chaoimh have been confirmed, after the Cork County Board Chairman has announced that the All-Ireland Hurling Championship quarter-finals will be held in the new venue.

The Lee-side stadium was initially intended to play host to the Munster Senior Football Championship final, but the deadline for completion was not met.

This evening, the news of the first games at the venue were confirmed by the Central Council.

The All-Ireland quarter-finals have taken place in Thurles as a double header for the last six years, but they will now get a change of scenery.

With Kilkenny and Tipperary already in the qualifiers, along with the losers of tomorrow’s clash between Cork and Waterford, there are some high profile teams likely to be competing on July 23.

The runners-up in the two provinces will take on two teams emerging from the back door.
