Fitzgerald Stadium


Fitzgerald Stadium is the principal Gaelic Athletic Association stadium located in Killarney, Ireland. It is also the home venue for the Kerry senior football team. Fitzgerald Stadium was officially opened on May 31, 1936 by O'Brien, the then Bishop of Kerry. The name honors one of the first great players of the Gaelic Athletic Association, Dick Fitzgerald.
The attendance at its first match was at least 20,000 and, within one year, the new Killarney stadium was host of the All-Ireland Hurling Final between Tipperary and Kilkenny due to the unavailability of Croke Park. The capacity of the ground was severely tested in 1950 when the stadium, hosted the Munster hurling final between Cork and Tipperary. It is estimated that a crowd of 50,000 turned up at the reunion. Further developments took place at the stadium in the 1970s, when it was erected the Dr. O’Sullivan stand and a pavilion that raised the capacity to 39,120.
The Stadium Committee has plans to make further developments at both ends of the ground to the standard of the Michael O’Connor Terrace incorporating new dressing rooms and covered areas, in order to eventually increase the capacity of the ground to 50,000. As a result, in the winter of 2008/2009 the first phase in the redevelopment was finished and the new Fitzgerald Stadium was unveiled to the public on June 7th on the occasion of the semi final of the Munster GAA Championship.
The newly refurbished Killarney Court Hotel, with full beauty and treatment centre and new children's play room, excellently located just a few minute walk from the centre of Killarney provides great facilities at prices starting from 60 euro.
