    Cork Gaa

    http://amp.irishexaminer.com/sport/g...bt-463929.html

    Selling land shotly after it was rezoned to residential purpose. Gosh how incidentally they renovate PUiC, go over budget and then a plot gets rezoned and sold.

    Also the naming rights won't be sold cheaply. Right GAA has a large international exposure and the stadium is used weekly http://amp.irishexaminer.com/sport/g...ly-463925.html

    "A new board of directors, featuring leading Cork businessmen Michael O’Flynn and John Mullins, has also been established to run the Páirc stadium as a separate entity to the day-to-day running of the Board’s activities. Stáid Cois Laoi will be based on the business model of Pairc an Chrocaigh Teoranta (PCT), run by Peter McKenna, who will also be part of the 11-person Páirc Uí Chaoimh board along with Croke Park stadium financial controller, Ger Mulryan.
    The board of directors will be chaired by incoming Cork GAA chair Tracey Kennedy and will also include Ger Lane, secretary Frank Murphy, Christy Cooney, Bob Ryan and retiring Board treasurer, Pearse Murphy. The incoming treasurer, who will be elected at annual convention next Sunday, will also be on the board of directors."

    and still he lives on.

              The make up of the committee is interesting and based on the non CCB members would be an impressive gathering. OFlynn is one of biggest property developers in the country, friend to Enda and has Gaa background.

              However the CCB representatives are a whose who of all the divisive factors (aka Pronsias' cronies) around. Two strikes later and all promises of reform and transparency a forgotten promise, Frank Murphy is still the power yielder.

                ‘No begging bowl’ on Páirc Uí Chaoimh debt, as Cork County Board prepare to sell land on the northside
                John Horgan

                MUNSTER Council chairman Jerry O’Sullivan is confident the Cork County Board will clear the Páirc Uí Chaoimh debt within the predicted two-year time-frame.

                The redevelopment of the Páirc cost €86m, leaving a debt of €23m, but yesterday in an interview with the Irish Examiner outgoing board chairman Ger Lane argued solid plans are in place to cover the shortfall.

                This includes the sale of 21 acres of a 37-acre landbank at Kilbarry, adjacent to Delanys GAA club, which was rezoned recently from light industrial to development. The land, near Delanys club on the northside, could be worth between €15m and €20m. Premium ticket sales, concerts and the sale of naming rights to the Páirc will also help.

                “The shortfall was a slight hiccup, but it is crystal clear the board have their work done in identifying how they are going to generate the necessary finance and I have no doubt they will,” said Cloyne native and former Cork chairman O’Sullivan.

                “There’ll be no begging bowl going around. There is a clear plan there. It is noticeable it did run over cost, but, then again, that is the case for a significant number of large projects.

                “I was involved in this project at the beginning and it is fantastic to see the finished product. It is a superb stadium that will play host to a countless number of big games in the years to come.”

                Cork received €53.75m in funding for the regeneration of their flagship venue, with the Government forwarding €30m, €20m from GAA coffers and €3.75m from Munster Council. This was topped up by the €10m Cork had saved over the years towards the project
