Cork GAA stars, Damien Cahalane and Mark Collins, spoke to the Irish Examiner at the historic opening day of the regenerated Pairc Uí Chaoimh in Cork.
Although Damien Cahalane was "only a patron" yesterday,he said that the pitch was amazing and he was looking forward to training down in the pitch as Cork senior hurler for his native county.
There's not a bad seat in the house!," said Cahalane.
Cork senior footballer Mark Collins described the pitch as "top class".
"It's like a mini Croke Park, the pitch looks exactly the same," said Collins.
"It's right up there, it's top notch," he added.
