Cork County Board have made Páirc Uí Chaoimh available to the HSE for use during the current spread of Covid-19.

On Tuesday, the GAA confirmed that Croke Park will be used as a Covid-19 drive-though testing centre.

The Association offered its national stadium for testing after it was deemed to have a suitable layout and given that no matches are being played at the Dublin 3 venue at present.

It is a by-appointment-only drive-through centre rather than a drop-in facility.

Páirc Uí Chaoimh has now also been made available, with the HSE still considering how they will use the stadium.

It is located just five minutes from Cork city centre, ten minutes from Cork Airport and five minutes from the city bus and train stations.

"We can confirm that Páirc Uí Chaoimh is now available to the HSE, who are considering possible uses for the stadium and we hereby wish to acknowledge the efforts that our club units have already undertaken in assisting local health services and in assisting vulnerable people in our communities at this difficult time," a Cork GAA statement read.

"Once again, we urge all our members to adhere to directives from the GAA, the HSE and the Department of Health during the current pandemic."

Cork have also postponed all club games in April and May, adding: "The Executive of Cork County Board met via video-conference on March 17th and, primarily with regard to the safety of our members and of the wider community, has decided to postpone the all first round games in the Premier Senior, Senior A, Premier Intermediate, Intermediate A and Lower Intermediate Championships in both football and hurling, as well as the County stages of the U21 football competitions and the County Junior B & C competitions.

"These first round club championship games had been scheduled across the four weekends in April and the first two weekends in May, but are now postponed en bloc.

"All other games and activities, including those under the jurisdiction of Rebel Óg, remain suspended as per GAA directive and advice from the HSE / Department of Health. This will continue until we are directed otherwise."
