Literally a fence between all 3
Was there at the weekend when 2 of them were at home and the ball kept coming on from the other pitch
Won't be any closer I'd imagine anywhere

Closest clubs but absolutely no rivalry

Coalisland and Clonoe probably a mile or a mile and a half as the crow flies.

Garycastle, Athlone, St Brigids, Clann na Gael around Athlone area in Westmeath/Roscommon.
Gracefield in Offaly side of Portarlington and Portarlington in laois side one springs to mind. Doubt much of a rivalry. Open to correction!
