Hosting Bruce Springsteen, U2 and Michael Jackson; a world title bout between Chris Eubank and Steve Collins, not to mention a few decent hurling and football matches, it was decided that Cork's Páirc Uí Chaoimh would be redeveloped in 2015.
Reopening this year for an All-Ireland quarter-final double header, the results of its transformation put the new stadium amongst the very best Ireland has to offer.
Contemplating both the old and new Páirc Uí Chaoimh, TG4 will tonight (21.30) air their documentary 'An Pháirc'.
With contributions from the players, fans and staff who knew the old stadium intimately, it promises to be an insightful look at what made "The Park" such a mesmerising host for Gaelic Games.
Speaking of it's allure, former Cork hurler and manager Dónal O'Grady was unequivocal in his adulation:
The facilities were poor, but it was 'Mecca' for anyone who was interested in football or hurling in Cork.
It promises to be yet another fascinating documentation of the GAA's numerous strands by TG4.
