The hurlers have already trained in Pair Ui Chaoimh, and its surface is guaranteed for five years. It's also expected to generate a profit after 2020.

He (and that chancer Bob) said this 3 years ago -

"CORK GAA CHIEFS have indicated that selling of naming rights for the redeveloped Páirc Uí Chaoimh is likely to help make up the shortfall between funding and the final cost of the project.

Following a media tour of the stadium yesterday, former Cork County Board chairman Bob Ryan – who is the chairman of the stadium steering committee – revealed that the construction is on budget, estimated to cost just short of €80m

John Mullins, chairman of the stadium business committee, “We hope that the Páirc will begin its life debt-free, and there aren’t many stadiums that you can say that about.”

I was looking at the fixtures left this year and it looks like theres a langerload of U21 championship games to be played and wont be finished in time for Christmas. That's bad.
Most of them are being played down on the 4G pitch in the Páirc in our "Centre of Excellence".
Yes I know thy cost a fair amount but why wasn't there provision made for a few of these pitches around the city say instead of expecting our young players to play these overload of games in freezing cold conditions in the middle of winter/Christmas?
It just doesn't make sense imo. Thanks Frank

Of course this is no surprise. Bob and Frank and their kind left their mark anyway. Thanks lads

By the way - Tracy sat on the Exec through all of this, has she anything to say on that matter? And another thing - why did it take a delegate to point all this out?

A timeline had been secured for the completion of the 2019 stadium accounts, commencing with an audit meeting on February 3rd and it was hoped that the accounts would be signed off on by mid to late March. The Audit and Risk Committee had responded to indicate that while they would have preferred the accounts to be presented earlier, they accepted the proposed timeline as the best that could be achieved but stressed that going forward, the stadium accounts should be available in a similar timeframe to the County Board accounts. The Committee had also assured the Executive of its help and support with the ongoing financial challenges.

The Chairperson reiterated what had been said at Convention in relation to the stadium accounts, saying that the Board could not fool itself that those accounts would present a pretty picture given that the stadium had certainly incurred further losses in 2019.

Some further discussion followed with both the Chairperson and the Runaí hoping to have further clarity in relation to delegates’ questions in due course.

The Runaí reported that the new pitch would be ready in time for both Senior teams to have a run-out there before the opening games of the Allianz Leagues, and clarified that club games would be played there in 2020. He also reminded delegate of the premium seat re-launch that took place in November and encouraged anyone who might be interested in purchasing seats to contact Páirc Uí Chaoimh.

Bleak stuff. Good to actually get the final figure.

At least -

“A coordinated, forward-looking business plan to deal with the likely funding difficulties is in preparation. Restructuring of Cork’s finances and fundraising has begun. Repayment schedules have been agreed and repayments have in fact commenced."
