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"

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.

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