http://www.irishexaminer.com/sport/gaa/pairc-ui-chaoimh-naming-rights-will-not-be-sold-cheaply-463925.html

I read this article about the naming rights, Interesting to see what Cork Chairman said.

“We have retained the services of an expert company in this area, based in Dublin, which is seeking out potential sponsors. Páirc Uí Chaoimh as a project has been an outstanding success and is now regarded as one of the best stadiums in Europe,” he said.

Is it really that good?!

According this official looking guy at 1.59 in the video "it's the only stadium in Europe that meets all the standards"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TA7YtwokPxI

I wonder what standards he is talking about, any ideas?

He's a Corkman, so it meets the only standard that matters. It's the only stadium in Europe that's in Cork.

Indeed.
Heard about the Cork man with the inferiority complex?
He thought he was only as good as everyone else.

Is it plain incompetence or something worse?

Many jobs in Ireland  have run over budget if they were scoped during the recession as building costs increased significantly.

However, there needs to a thorough investigation here and then they should move on to Casement.

On the mouth of Christmas the general public get the news that the scheme has overrun by many millions and that Croke Park are going to sort it but that it’s going to take many years to run it around.

Surely 18 months after the place opened it was apparent that the overall cost was way in excess of the contract price and this can’t be news to the inner circle so why the secrecy ?.

Was there much incentive for them to keep the cost down if they knew Croke Park would have to step in and bail them out?

Ros, Kildare, Mayowestros,  Galway,  Cork........
All need(ed) Central GAA help.
Surely time for some full time staff to be provided to the Provincial Councils to assist the Co Board Volunteers with projects and finances, oversight etc

And its not even that great a stadium by modern standards. 2 open ended terraces. Where did the extra 25 million go. And where did they get the extra 25 million?.

How do you go £25 million over? That’s a shitload of dough.

I mean, wasn’t Casement meant to cost £60 million? 25 m is nearly half that!
