eir Business changes the game with the first high density WiFi network deployed in Ireland at Croke Park. Eavann Murphy, Chief Commercial Officer, eir Business talks about what the network means for Croke Park.
We were excited to launch Ireland’s first high density WiFi deployment at Croke Park Meetings & Events. The new network operates across Croke Park’s meeting and events facilities and will also support stadium operations on match days.

This is a high quality, high-density WiFi network that opens up super-fast internet access to people attending events and matches at Croke Park. In all, up to 26,000 patrons, including corporate and premium level clients, can avail of the WiFi network and use it to access the internet. In addition, Croke Park Operations teams will use the network for ticketing, ePOS, telephony services and for rolling out Internet of Things solutions.
For Croke Park Meetings & Events it means they can now offer event organisers and delegates the best WiFi coverage in Ireland; providing them with uncongested internet access and high download and upload speeds.

“Our high density WiFi network is a real point of differentiation for us at Croke Park Meetings & Events and we are now in a position to deliver internet connectivity and services to our clients that we were not in a position to deliver previously. Thanks to eir Business, we now have an unrivalled WiFi experience for delegates and patrons in Croke Park providing us with the agility and flexibility to run Croke Park’s business of meetings, hospitality, large scale concerts and events. It also affords us the opportunity to leverage our investment for the GAA at a national level by, for example, providing these same premium services, routed through Croke Park, into our National Games Development Centre in Abbotstown,” said GAA Commercial & Stadium Director, Peter McKenna.


This network is truly a game changer – it’s the first and only high density WiFi deployment in Ireland. The quality of WiFi access is a big plus for Croke Park’s Meetings & Events business providing uncongested internet access for delegates. Event and Concert organisers need only plug in to Croke Park’s WiFi network rather than bringing their own, whilst Croke Park Corporate and Premium level patrons will experience the best match day WiFi services in Ireland.
There is a new game at play in Croke Park.
