Green Glens Arena

The Green Glens Arena is a public entertainment location in Millstreet, in County Cork, Ireland. There is a 0.2 km² outdoor estate for equestrian sporting events and an indoor arena measuring 80 metres by 40 metres.[1] The indoor arena has a capacity of 8,000 and is perhaps most well known for hosting the Eurovision Song Contest in 1993. In 1995 it also hosted the World Super-Middleweight Boxing Championship fight between Steve Collins and Chris Eubank. The equestrian centre hosts international events annually and offers an enclosed menage, cross country riding, hacking and riding instruction and residential weekends.[2]
