Walsh Park (Irish: Páirc Breathnach) is a GAA stadium in Waterford, Ireland named after Willie Walsh, a well-known referee and long time campaigner for Gaelic games in Waterford.[2] It is one of the two homes of the Waterford Gaelic football and hurling teams, the other being Fraher Field in Dungarvan. The stadium is set to undergo a €7m redevelopment which will result in an increased capacity of 16,500 by 2020, though it is unknown if it will be ready in time for the 2020 Munster Hurling Championship.[3].
