It’s being report by the Irish Examiner this evening that Cork GAA have made a deal with SuperValu to rename Páirc Uí Chaoimh after the grocery store.
This could actually be a great move for Cork GAA, does it really matter anymore what a stadium is called, I’m sure everyone will still call it Páirc Uí Chaoimh and with the amount death that Cork GAA have build up in building the stadium.
A nice cash injection of €200/300k a year which the Examiner are reporting would be a welcome boost.

I'm genuinely saddened by that Páirc Uí Chaoimh/SuperValu Park news. Some things should remain sacred and the names of our most important stadiums is one of them.

Is anyone going to hold the cork county board to account for building a stadium they can’t fill and can’t afford? Of course not. Instead you see them pushing for Casement and Fitzgerald Stadium to get similar treatment. Bonkers stuff.
