Let's speak about Ireland...the hosting nation this month. We are in Cork.
The Host City Edit
Cork (Corcaigh in Irish)is the second largest city in the Republic of Ireland and the third largest on the island. The city is built on the River Lee which splits into two channels at the western end of the city; the city centre is divided by these channels. They reconverge at the eastern end where the quays and docks along the river banks lead outwards towards Lough Mahon and Cork Harbour, one of the world's largest natural harbours. It was the European Capital of Culture in 2004. The nearby village of Millstreet hosted the Eurovision Song Contest in 1993.
The Venue Edit
Páirc Uí Chaoimh, (literally "O'Keeffe Park" in English) is a Gaelic games stadium in Cork, Ireland. The venue is located in Ballintemple and is built on the site of the original Cork Athletic Grounds. The facility initially opened in 1976.
Primarily used as a venue for Gaelic games, it has been used to host Cork GAA's home league and championship games in both Gaelic football and hurling. The finals of both the Cork senior hurling and football championships have routinely been held at the venue. It has also hosted concerts by Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, Prince, U2, The Stone Roses and Oasis, as well as the annual Siamsa Cois Laoi festival.
