🚨 BREAKING NEWS Coming out of Cork GAA this morning

Posted by

What an achievement this is by Cork GAA, Cork have been named pitch of the year. This is welcome news when you consider it was one of the worst pitches not too long ago. Cork GAA took to its social media last night and put out an announcement on their website which read;

A robust system of assessments was completed during recent visits to the six finalists, based on three broad criteria:
(a) Pitch quality assessment during the technical visit in October 2022
(b) Environmental conditions and usage
(c) Resources and management assessment.
A wide range of factors influence the quality of pitches, including the initial construction, the drainage system, the quality of the maintenance programme and the level of pitch use.  Accordingly, a scoring system was used, based on over thirty different factors influencing each pitch and this was combined with a weighting factor related to the importance of each factor to avoid bias in the scoring of any one factor.

Particular thanks must go to all the team here at Páirc Uí Chaoimh, in particular, John Murphy of Goldcrop, Stephen Forest and the team at Turftech, our new Groundsman Colm Daly and of course, all our staff and stewards.
