Most clubs would see it as an honour to host their county team.

personally I think the issue of the place being far to windy (and bloody freezing) to conduct any sort of long game tactics (kick-passing, goal kicking etc). and the change of scene is probably welcomed, if not initiated by some of the players i would suspect.

Yeah but it's a pity we have nowhere central that all the county teams could use to train. If we could raise the money to build such a place I hope they build the main building so that it looks like a T from the sky. I think that would be cool

have u been up at garvaghy? its actually very well laid out.both the building and the pitches.i wonder how much they made by hiring the pitches out, it was fully booked there all along for a few months.to many people knock the tyrone setup which is one the best run county boards about, both financially and playing wise

Well saying as you asked...
The gym at garvaghy is not fit for purpose,
There is no sports hall at the venue (Tyrone seniors go to a sports hall in Cookstown for fitness testing)
Tyrone hurlers turned up to train on the Wednesday of the 1st round of the under 21 Ulster championship and the caretaker didn't even bother to hang around to turn the lights on for them.
The site is possibly the windiest place in Tyrone.
But sure you keep telling us how well laid out the place is and how much money it is generating and the clubs will continue to pay for its upkeep and the county team will continue to look for alternative venues to train

Garvaghy was an ill conceived ego trip

Let's face it. Garvaghey is a badly designed building. Because it's in a 'T', there is so much wasted space that can't be used for anything e.g. the excess space in the foyer, the poor gym, changing rooms being on the wrong side of the building. So many problems that shouldn't have occurred.

Wait 10-15 years for the trees around the perimeter to grow high and reduce some of that wind.

Know for a fact that the pitches in garvaghy were been reseeded there a wile ago ahead of the summer months (like most club pitches are being also seeded around this time)

HOWEVER, im not 100% sure if this is for the reason of them not training there, they have defo trained in drumragh a few times over last month

the gym is fit for purpose. there is a second weight room which not many know about
agree on a sports hall,im sure that is on the agenda
no lights for the hurlers-sums up the attiude to hurling in the county,nobody cares about it
changing rooms are spacious and ideally set at the back of the building with each having there own entrance meaning the main bulding can be locked up early.if there were at the front there would be nothing but grass and dirt all around the place
maxi was/is training the gaels in garvaghy and u couldn't have him snooping about when tyrone are training.also im sure u would get fed up going to the same place every night so good call to train in diferent grounds in the build upto Donegal game.minors u21s seniors all have had a lot of sessions done in garvaghy already this year.it is a success and so are tyrone.

He is training which team?

By the way IMO Garvaghy is not good enough for purpose.

I know it's not a good idea to assume but I assume redzone means maxi curran. If that is a correct assumption then redzone is wrong again. Curran trains St Eunans not the gaels (whoever they are), but sure when most of the post is wrong why should he get that bit right.

I've heard that Maxi is training Eunans in Garvaghey too.

Anyhow, has anyone a squad picture of the 2001 U21 All Ireland winners?
