Did Traffic Problems Affect The Páirc Uí Chaoimh Attendance?

Did Traffic Problems Affect The Páirc Uí Chaoimh Attendance?
By Daniel Kelly

The first inter-county game to take place in Páirc Uí Chaoimh was far from a sellout, but did traffic issues affect the attendance?

28,567 fans made the trip to Cork for the game, between Clare and Tipperary. The attendance is just over 3,000 less than attended the 2016 quarter-final double header in Semple Stadium, but it will be a letdown to the GAA and Cork County Board.

Over 30,000 are expected on Sunday for the Waterford-Wexford game, bringing the combined attendances to over 60,000 over the weekend.

Despite the state-of-the-art facilities in the new Páirc, it still has the same traffic issues that fell upon the old stadium. A breakdown on the Dunkettle roundabout did nothing to help the traffic for Clare's and Tipperary's fans.

Car parking is rare around the stadium, and ahead of the weekend's games, the Gardai warned fans about parking illegally close to the stadium.

Sadly, everyone didn't listen.

There will always be teething issues, but they need to be ironed out very quickly.
