MacCumhail Park (Páirc Sheáin Mac Cumhaill in Irish) is a GAA stadium in Ballybofey, County Donegal, Ireland. It is the main grounds of Donegal's Gaelic football and hurling teams. The ground is named after Seán Mac Cumhail and had a capacity of 18,000, but that was reduced to 12,250 after a safety audit report was released in February 2012.[1] Donegal GAA announced in November 2012 plans to restore the capacity to 18,000,[2] Work got underway in February 2013.[3] and the necessary works were completed by late March 2013.[4]
