The Challenge

The redevelopment of Páirc Uí Chaoimh was a high profile stadium contract in the Cork region awarded to Roadstone in September 2015.

As a main supplier of concrete materials and stone products, the project was certain to pull from Roadstone’s expert ability and experience of supplying major contracts.

Completed over a two year period, Páirc Uí Chaoimh is now the fourth largest Gaelic games stadium in Ireland with a capacity of 45,000.

The Solution

Materials supplied to the project consisted of:




Roadstone Thermal Liteblock


During the construction John Sisk & Son was also awarded a contract to build an all-weather pitch and centre of excellence on an adjoining 7 acres of ground. This additional element to the project required a significant order of stonefill from Roadstone

Also during the project Roadstone’s Blacktop Contracts Division secured a contract to supply and lay the blacktop element of the job.

The Result

By following procedures as closely as possible the relationship with the client grew over the project. Over a period of 21months from October 2015 to June 2017 Roadstone supplied the following materials to site:

32,000 cubic metres of concrete consisting of 17 different mix designs.

98,000 tonne of stone material

15,000 blocks (including Roadstone’s new Thermal Liteblock)


In summary the project went well for both John Sisk & Sons and Roadstone. Learning experiences from this project were as follows:

Good channels of communication are always required

Advanced planning and scheduling are critical

Timely reaction to issues arising is essential to ensuring confidence

Quality products and service makes the job easier
