Question Ceist: Smallest GAA pitch in Ireland?

Where is it?

Need to settle a bet.

The smallest pitch i've played on is the one in Ballinlough. There's only the length of a hurley between the two 65's

I doubt you've heard of it though

Flower lodge is shorter I'd say.

The Back pitch in plenty of clubs would be barely the size of a saccarball pitch.

Whats your point fella.

should all GAA pitches not be the same size, or is there a general "era fuckit twill do" attitude?

officially, they have to be 130m to 145m long and 80m to 90m wide. AFAIK

I'd say you'd find a fair few outside these regs.

Was bet £10 that it was Redmond O'Hanlon's GAC in Armagh - I doubt it's the smallest, but I've not idea how people have a proper game on such a narrow turf.
