I assume from your post you know how to get to St Finbarrs Hosp for your appointment. Opposite the Hospital entrance is a narrow road, one way traffic at start as very narrow (see Pharmacy opposite entrance - strart of Ballinlough Rd)). This is start of Ballinlough Road. Drive until you come to Ballinlough Church on left hand side. Take 2nd left turn after Church, go down hill and turn right on to the Boreenmanna Road. Keep driving very short distance and on right hand side is Pairc Ui Rinn. You can't miss it. This drive is under 10 mins from Hospital.

Regcar, Observers directions are the best and easiest, I reckon you should follow them. However, just in case, here's an alternative route that concentrates on busier roads and wider streets. It's probably about 10 mins as well. Turn right upon exiting the hospital. Continue on this road until you see the fly over of the soth ring road ahead. This is a major junction with traffic lights etc. Take the left (opposite where traffic is exiting the south ring) onto the Well Road. Continue straight through a small roundabout. Turn left at the next roundabout. On your left you'll soon pass Cork Con rugby club. Continue another couple hundred yards and Pairc Ui Rinn is on your left. BUT YOU'RE PROBABLY BEST TO GO OBSERVERS WAY. My way is just in case you get losT!

It may be that you're not a huge GAA fan if you don't know where Pairc Ui Rinn is. If that is the case, then welcome to the organisation. We are not an exclusive club and all comers are ALWAYS welcome. I hope your son enjoys the match and that you and him continue your association with the GAA for many decades to come. I still remember many of the matches I attended with my old man, and I'm glad we had those times together. More than any other sporting organisation, I think that the GAA brings families from all social and economic backgrounds together in friendship, both on the field and off.

Find a soccer fan and ask him to direct you to Flower Lodge ! He'll know what you are talking about and you won't miss your son's county final.

Named after the lodge on which it was built ;)
