Empty Seats in Pairc Ui Chaoimh

One evening while walking near Pairc Ui Chaoimh we noticed the gate at the Blackrock end open so wandered in for a quick look around. I hadn’t been in there in years but it was nice to look around and take a few shots. Must have been a GAA meeting or something that evening …

Like the new theme? It’s Oenology!

One reply on “Empty Seats in Pairc Ui Chaoimh”

They actually leave those gates open and allow anyone in for a wander around! Very kind of them. I was there last summer and spent about 1/2 hour at least taking photos. It was different but nice to wander around the place when it’s so empty.
I did the same in Pearch stadium, Galway just yesterday and the grounds manager said if I wanted to take photos on any match day and go to the ‘control room’ (birds eye view) as well just get onto him.

Here’s my photos (with a related musical title for the posts, as I always do):
