Pairc ui Rinn confirmed as venue for Cork v Kerry
The Munster Council have confirmed that Páirc Uí Rinn will host the Cork v Kerry Munster Championship Semi Final clash.
With Páirc Uí Chaoimh unavailable due to this week’s Ed Sheeran concerts the game was initially moved to the Ballintemple venue before Munster Council moved the game to Killarney.
The Cork footballers released a statement to say that they would only play the game at Páirc Uí Rinn, with Kerry last week agreeing to play the game there and setting aside their longstanding home and away arrangement involving the venues of Pairc ui Chaoimh and Fitzgerald’s Stadium.
Munster Council released a statement last night to say their CCC had ratified Páirc Uí Rinn as the venue for the game, which will throw in at 6pm on May 7th. It will be preceded by the Munster Ladies football championship clash of Kerry and Tipperary at 3.30.
