Took me an hour to get from Dunkettle into the city. Still think it's a bit of a mickey mouse stadium and it should never have been built there. How they spent 100 million on it is beyond me.

I was referring to the ground itself.
The works on the dunkettle are slowing the whole place down at the moment.

I got out home granted going west effortlessly

I went last night and I'm by no means a rugby fan but the rugby crowd did a number of things last night that were a huge step in the right direction for Cork. 
1) They showed the GAA up on how to create an atmosphere. Have never seen PUC like that before. 2) They showcased Páirc Uí Chaoimh to the wider sporting community. It is a fantastic stadium and 3) They showed the PUC can host anything and should look at holding more sports. There's no reason why they shouldn't be looking at holding a senior international game there sometime. Wet and windy Thursday in Cork and it was sold out for a rugby friendly. Get the football team in and you'd get the exact same crowd and not be left with a half empty Aviva.

The big downside with PUC of course is the location. A 25 minute walk from town and its exactly a route littered with bars and public transport. When they knocked it down and rebuilt it a few years ago, they had an ample opportunity to look at rebuilding it on some of the derelict sites along the quays and never even considered it, a wasted opportunity. 
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes an even bigger man to laugh at that man.

Apart from the fact that they have to hold the games in LR. 
And when there is debt to pay off, they won't be paying somebody else for the use of their stadium. Maybe an under 21s game might be more realistic.

Was the atmosphere really that good? Didn't really come across on TV.

Its a poor stadium by football standards.  Its fine for GAA.

There's no windbreakers on the main stand, the stand opposite is very basic, and the two ends are uncovered terraces for starters.  Compare it to any League 1 or Championship  team's stadium and its terrible.

Nope. The Munster Council have never given it a Munster Hurling Final for example, lots of politics involved.

I was in the premium last night. Would actually prefer it to premium in the Aviva. Its comfortably up to holding an international but I agree it should be a lot better again for the money spent. Uncovered terraces are a joke in 100m stadium.

As for atmosphere last night, it was fine but nothing remotely special. About 10k there for the rugby the rest of us there for the occasion. If I went to an Ireland football match and was sat next to someone who behaved as I did last night (going for beers during the game, talking away to people mid game) I'd want to shoot me! Quite liberating to be at a match where you aren't really arsed actually. That went for about 30k of us there but we jumped on the bandwagon when they were winning. Thats what rugby is all about for most anyway!

You'd have a rocking atmosphere for a football International though, Cork is essentially a hurling and (association) football City.

The 2021 munster final was held there but attendance was restricted due to covid.

It has been full for a GAA match aswell. Cork played Limerick in this year's Munster Championship and it was sold out.

Was in the premium for the Miller match and it was great. I wouldn't have an international match there as the pitch would be lost and add in that the rest of the ground isn't covered looses the atmosphere I think. Pain on the hole of a walk to get there with nothing about either. It has plenty of potential though.

Was told that when the stadium was being built, the GAA insisted on using local builders, electricians, plumbers, etc. Which is all well and good, but nobody realised that none of these workers had built a stadium until it was almost complete. They had to bring in workers with experience of stadium construction to redo a lot of it, which led to the delays and spiralling costs.

Don't think it was Sham. I was at that Limerick match. They kept releasing tickets in bits and bobs for some goddamn reason, so whilst a lot of the time ticketmaster made it seem sold out, the next day there would be loads of tickets. Terraces were definitely not full.  Can't find the attendance but the article at https://www.irishexaminer.com/sport/gaa/arid-40850054.html broadly accords with my recollection

That game was a sambals for ticket sales. They sold them through clubs right up to the Thursday, so it was unavailable on ticketmaster till the Friday. It was Easter Sunday too so a lot who would ahve gone had plans made at that stage

I like the Uncovered terrraces, they create a much better atmosphere than the all seater bowls. Nobody's ever said he Bombonera should cover and put in seats.
