Believe this is still a proposed development, but Westport GAA new pitch would be in a nice spot


Hasta la victoria siempre

If we're going by scenery, I'd say the Derrylaughan & Brocagh GAA pitches close to the shores of Lough Neagh would win it in Tyrone. Mind you, both hateful places to play in against the wind if any bit of a breeze comes in off the loughshore.

On the other side  of the Blackwater , Maghery’s pitch looks a great setting  from the air , (but less so at ground level) .

Another pitch by a lake is that of Ramor United's in Virginia, Cavan asainst Lough Ramor. Hard to get a decent photo of it though - best one I could find.

Edit: OTOH, I don't think any GAA club in Fermanagh has facilities on the shores of Lough Erne, slightly ironic given how the county is often promoted for its scenery.
Edit #2: I stand corrected - though not Lough Erne, Belcoo's GAA grounds lie alongside the shores of Lough Macnean. A quick DDG search doesn't give a readily available photo.  :-\

The grass banks and the old dressing rooms in Birr . . . until the former were covered in concrete steps and the latter were demolished.
