Tipperary take on Clare today in the All-Ireland Hurling Championship quarter-final in Páirc Uí Chaoimh, marking the first intercounty game at the Lee-side venue since the 2014 Munster final, as the re-established stadium opens for business.

Páirc Uí Chaoimh is a state-of-the-art 45,000 seater, and while it is not expected to fill out this weekend, there is a buzz around the city as over 60,000 hurling fans flock to the ground over two days.

To mark the opening of the ground, RTÉ have released a video profiling the stadium’s history and its rebirth in recent years.

“It hasn’t left us a corpse, it has left us a new child to rear!”

This is powerful stuff!
