Fine Gael's European elections campaign divide is keeping out of the Rebel County, territory assigned to local girl Deirdre Clune.

But Kelly (right with Enda Kenny) is claiming the credit for the €30m grant for the redevelopment of Pairc Ui Chaoimh, the city's ageing GAA ground.

The former GAA president says he was "instrumental in garnering government support for the Pairc Ui Chaoimh project".

"Having personally spoken to Enda Kenny in favour of this project, outlining its importance for Cork, I welcome the confirmation that it will go ahead," he boasted.

Simon Coveney, who sits at the cabinet table where such funding decisions are made, was also talking up the importance, suggesting he is taking the credit.
