Ballybofey

Town End & River End, not the most imaginative but the Ballybofey folk are a bit like that.

What?  Which end of Bord na Móna OCP is nearest the town? Both are equidistant to the town, if you ask me.  For me, it's the Arden Road End, while the far end is the Park Avenue End.

Birr would have the Town End and (probably) the Roscrea End.

Town End- O’Connor Park

The Camcor - St Brendan’s Park

Healy park: the town end, the Gortin road end.

Also confused at that... since its actually the stand runs parallel to the Gortin Road I always had to get clarification

The Arden Road end is the town end. I know, there’s no logic to it being called that. Park Avenue end is called the same.

The town end is sometimes humorously called the Camcor as any decent puck of a ball over the ball stopper inevitably ends up in it.

No, only half the ground is in Armagh or a fraction less.

Armagh -  the Dalton end & St Brigid's end? Though the Athletic Grounds was there before St Brigid's Secondary School, so not sure what else it is or was known as - officially or locally.

True, but it's name comes from grounds entrance at the stand side being at one end.
