The redevelopment is going to cost about 80m euro's, where has all the funding come from?

It's definitely not finished. I have my doubts it will be finished for next year's championship.

Heard the same from a Corkman last week.

 He was giving out about having to head to Killarney for so many years in a row.

The demolition phase was only supposed to take 4 months but ended up taking 9months, so it's at least 5 months behind schedule.

The Corkman I was talking to, had heard some rumours about some big fight between the contractors and sub-contractors. His exact words were  - "it's all going to end in either a Prime Time Special or a Tribunal"

He's a bit of a doom and gloom merchant but has very little faith in the Cork footballers or Cork hurlers doing anything at all this summer.

That's not the reason. Meath lads just don't like too much light revealing what they are getting up to. Nice and gloomy is ideal.

At least the Hyde is named after something real. Meath may as well have called their ground Pixie Park.

This was a month ago but gives some idea of the "progress".

http://www.eveningecho.ie/cork-news/video-pictures-work-continues-pairc-ui-chaoimh-redevelopment/2000700/

It's a mess of a project from the start really. An unsuitable location for a stadium, let alone a training centre (I refuse to call 1 pitch and a bar a Centre of Excellence). There has already been huge budget over-runs, arguments with planners/engineers, off the cuff changes to plans etc etc. Par for the course with Frank Murphy Ltd really.

1 guy who was working there told me the Engineers were begging the board to consider moving the stadium back from the river and changing the plans as they could not guarantee a stable foundation on the old stadium orientation. Were drilling pilot holes and hitting liquid mud all over the shop. Hardly surprising considering pitch level in the stadium is 20feet below high tide level, with the river 50m behind the old uncovered stand. (Side facing TV cameras).

All this is made even more ridiculous by the fact that the board were offered land just off the South Ring motorway which is far more accessible for the vast majority of players/supporters, to build a centre of excellence on a site where you could have had 6+ pitches and built whatever size clubhouse/gym you wanted. 

Just in case people don't grasp how ridiculous the situation in Cork is, the Cork Senior Hurlers were forced to train on a rugby field not long ago. A SENIOR County team, less than 6 weeks before championship.
