Ex-Hurricane Ophelia Causes Extensive Damage to Football Ground Ahead of Vital Game

The roof of a stand at Turner’s Cross Stadium in Cork collapsed on Monday, October 16, as ex-hurricane Ophelia made its way through Ireland.

In video recorded from a nearby house, the corrugated iron above the Derrynane Stand at Cork City FC’s home stadium can be seen briefly wavering, before being completely torn out of place.

A planned match between Cork City FC and Derry City had already been postponed as a result of Ophelia.
