  6. What is a more modern site to see?
    Reply
    Corke Park is a stadium designed for amateur sports, but it’s much more than that because it’s locally described as the spiritual home of Irish culture nationalism. It has a hidden secret for tourists that get tickets, which is not an easy thing to do because most tourists do not go here. If you do, you will be immersed in Irish culture. There is also the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) museum for those sports lovers.
