CENTRAL COUNCIL HAS confirmed that the revamped Pairc Ui Chaoimh will host the All-Ireland hurling quarter-finals on 23 July.

There has been much criticism owing to the recent announcement that the stadium wouldn’t be ready in time for either the Munster Senior Football final on 2nd July or the provincial hurling decider which is pencilled in for the following weekend.

The quarter-finals had initially been scheduled for Semple Stadium but will now take place in the redesigned 45,000-capacity venue on Leeside, with some recent reports estimating the work has cost close to the €85m mark.
