So far tonight there are 4 Division 1 teams in Ulster and there are no floodlit grounds in Ulster.

What are you talking about? Down & Armagh both have floodlit grounds. Not sure about the rest
I'm talking about what the Sunday Game told us tonight.
Spillane said about 3 times that Ulster has 4 D1 teams.
Meanwhile the presenter told us and made an issue out of it that Ulster has no floodlit grounds.
I turned off halfway through the football....pure drivel.

Joanne actually said very few Ulster teams have lights.

Casement Park had a cracking set of floodlights installed about 10 yr ago. Im sure if anyone wants to make a decent offer. Must arrange dismantling and collection themselves.

Just drive in and knick them. Sure nobody would see a lorry and trailer hidden in that long grass

Pat saying the weather conditions will make zero difference was bollix as well.  If itís driving wind and rain of course it will make a difference.

It's bolix alright but I recall attending inter-county games last May, June where the games was played in driving wind and rain while I also attended club games in October, November and the games was played in pleasant sunshine.

Can never tell with the unpredictable Irish weather.

Would they not all have lights apart from Antrim.

Clones doesn't but i'm sure Inniskeen and possibly blaney do.

Should be noted, Omagh in any kind of bad weather will be useless and unplayable.

The GAA are embarking on an unprecedented experiment by playing the jewels in the crown (exclusively summer championships heretofore), when they normally play the provincial club.
Plying them in a concentrated form over 7 or so weeks is madness on top.

They just want to get everything over and done with.

They've cut the grass  - if we put down jumpers for goalposts it's game on.

They could just go to that farm that supplies Croke Park and get some turf, lay it and away they go for games. There won't be a big crowd and sure they aren't even using changing rooms nowadays.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Antrim play county matches in Ahoghill and they have match lights. So that makes 8/9
