For the first time since 2014, Páirc Uí Chaoimh hosts a senior inter-county match today.
The newly redeveloped stadium, which only opened earlier this week, sees Clare and Tipperary battle in the All-Ireland Hurling Championship quarter-final this afternoon.
Originally opened in 1976, the stadium has been the lifeblood of Cork's Docklands for the past four decades. From Munster finals, to welcoming the likes of Michael Jackson and U2.
Ahead of Saturday's game, RTÉ went through the history of the former Cork Athletic Grounds in it's previous guise, through the past 41 years.

Opened as one of the most modern stadia in the GAA, the Páirc quickly went into disrepair and by the time it was eventually demolished, it was one of the least popular venues among players in the country.
Described by RTÉ's Daire O'Brien as a "Soviet silo of the seventies", the stadium still looks similar to its old incarnation, but with a multi-million euro facelift.
Páirc Uí Chaoimh - a structure almost gleeful in it's coldness, but it hasn't left us a corpse. It has left us a new child to rear.
The venue has become a stadium that befits Ireland's second city.
