Lot of clubs great set ups right across the county. But not many with floodlights on their main pitch.
Healy Park, Greencastle and Stewartstown only ones that spring to mind that floodlights are on their main pitch.

I would agree that our facilities (Carmen) are one he best in the county with regard to playing surface, parking and capacity. However changing rooms are in dire need of upgrade as they are too small for modern day football, this is something which the club have highlighted and to my knowledge could happen over the next year or 2. Any player from outside clubs say for atmosphere and buzz it is one of the best places to play championship football as the stands are close to the pitch and things can get heated!

Obviously Omagh is one of the best in Tyrone.

Considering Everything, Changing Rooms, Quality of main pitch and Training field, gym facilities, stand/surrounding grounds, parking etc.
 Killyclogher isn't bad 2 good pitches good gym changing rooms and stand.
Donaghmore has good changing rooms about the height of it. bad pitches, stand is small car parking limited.
Dromore has good setup in terms of pitches and main field is in good shape and with a 3g. In massive need of new changing rooms.
Edendork in need of a stand. Club house facilities are brilliant, main field is ok. Have they another training field?
Coalisland is not bad. New big hall built club house is decent with a good gym. Pitch is tempermental but can be good.
Errigal have a good setup, club house is very good with good gym, parking is ok for league games but championship games can struggle. 2 good pitches and stand.
Carrickmore needs work done to training fields as they are in very poor condition. Club house needs completely redone. Stands and main field very good and can have a cracking atmosphere. Parking is well managed.

Surely Strabane has to be up there with the best. 2 full size pitches (both unreal surfaces, one with great floodlights) and 2 youth pitches. An outdoor ball wall, 8 changing rooms and ample parking. Clubhouse with bar overlooking the pitch although definitely missing a stand but the grass bank allows for a great view. If not for geographical location would host a lot more championship matches.

Ample parking for a division 1 championship match?
New changing rooms are a great job. Pitches usually are in good condition. Could do with a stand and concrete steps. Could possibly host smaller championship matches from division 2 or 3 with teams that don't have as big of following or interest?

Problem with Strabane's pitch is that it is in absolute dive of an area. Remember getting pelted in the bus with stones from the children. They blocked the road with wood and other shite then let loose.

Never minded going into the Ballycolman estate, always a great atmosphere before the game there to be honest and found the people to be great gaels. It's got it's problems but no worse than Dungannon etc.

With the embarrassment that is Casement park I think it's time this great county seized the initiative and invested in an all seater stadium for the future. In the Advent of the super 8s it makes sense. The cost will be a lot but I think it is certainly doable over a long period of time.

Id agree with that and Omagh would make a very decent 2nd venue.
