From JBM to Wacko Jacko to Eubank, relive the colourful history of Páirc Uí Chaoimh

TG4 will air a fascinating documentary tonight.

AN PHÁIRC — WHICH will be broadcast on TG4 at 9.30pm tonight — will tell the story of the place where Cork hurlers and footballers have sported and played for decades.

Icons like Billy Morgan and Sean Óg Ó hAilpín will join stars from rivals counties like Jack O’Shea and Barney Rock to relive the games played down by the Lee.

Promoter Oliver Barry, who brought the likes of Michael Jackson and Prince to the Páirc will also reflect on the now redeveloped stadium.

“For scores of thousands of Irish people, this stadium holds many special memories of hurling and football matches and entertainment  events held there over the years,” says TG4 Sports Editor, Rónán Ó Coisdealbha.

“This programme will evoke those heady days for many TG4 viewers and is bound to be popular with our audience, at home and abroad.”
