GAA Fans Bewildered By The Absolute State Of Páirc Uí Chaoimh

GAA Fans Bewildered By The Absolute State Of Páirc Uí Chaoimh

The Allianz HL Division 1A fixture between Waterford and Cork saw The Déise claim their first win of the campaign. The final score was 1-20 to 1-15 as Waterford were helped by a Séamus Harnedy red card just before half-time.

However, his knee-drop was not the only talking point. Viewers were left bewildered by the fact over €80m and two years later, the pitch was in a fairly abysmal state.

As part of the redevelopment, the new home of Cork GAA now has a capacity of 45000 people and is advertised as capable of hosting concerts and conferences. However, based on the evidence of today's performance the field is not yet equipped to host back-to-back games.

Earlier in the day, Cavan overcame Cork in the football on a scoreline of 0-14 to 0-11.
