GAA Fans Bewildered As Páirc Uí Chaoimh Is Left Hopelessly Empty

GAA Fans Bewildered As Páirc Uí Chaoimh Is Left Hopelessly Empty
By Arthur James O'Dea Updated

Today saw Clare and Wexford contest the first of this weekend's two All-Ireland hurling quarter-finals. With the recent good weather restored to its beautiful best, Cork's Páirc Uí Chaoimh looked the perfect venue for what was sure to be a memorable tie.

The trouble was, Páirc Uí Chaoimh was at times all you could see. Despite the magnitude of today's game, it appears that fans of both sides were not overly keen on making the journey.

In stark contrast to the 45,000 Páirc Uí Chaoimh can hold, it has been reported that slightly more than 10,000 fans of both sides turned up in Cork this afternoon.

In what turned out to be an incredibly tight affair that went the way of Clare after a strong Wexford finish, the sheer vacancy of Páirc Uí Chaoimh left it all looking a little drab.

Amid such disheartening scenes, many watching were left confused as to why this match had been scheduled for Cork's Páirc Uí Chaoimh at all.

With many suspecting Thurles may have been a more suitable venue, this scarcely halted the frustration many felt watching such an entertaining game played out in these bare surroundings.

With this win, Clare will now take on Galway in an All-Ireland semi-final in two weeks. As for the winners of tomorrow's tie between Kilkenny and Limerick, they will face Cork on Sunday 29 July.
