Facilities, Pitches
« on: December 08, 2014, 02:56:08 AM »
I was asked an interesting question over the weekend about GAA Club facilities in Tyrone- Which Club has the best facilities? I couldn't really give an answer! Anyone have any ideas on which Clubs have the best?

Donaghmore seem to have a really good setup.  Changing rooms are probably the best in the county ive seen anyway.  Pitch is a bit heavy but good all the same.  In general, a lot of clubs in Tyrone have good setups

Killyclogher pitch is fantastic and have reasonably new changing rooms.

the new pitch at carrickmore is also excellent and is probably the best venue for hosting club championship games

Edendork are pretty fresh has well, with a great playing surface.  If only they had a stand for spectators

Off the top of my head, clubs that would need to improve facilities are Dungannon, Pomeroy, Coalisland

Decent set-up in Greencastle alright, but a $hite place to play from a players perspective as the wind is always ridiculous.

Nothing like a big wind to ruin a match. Greencastles facilities are top notch, it's the exposed location that lets it down.

Strabane have a good set-up.

awful, worst thing ever happened is the big new development because its attracting more games than ever, conditions just be a disaster, its so open even the atmosphere is destroyed.
Strabane's surface is first class and Killyman's has always been superb too.
Couple of bad fields throughout the country too of course but generally facilities are much better than their counterparts in the rest of ulster I believe
