Anyone know how many people can get into Davitt Park?

2A is in Croker and 3B is in Dr Hyde Park.

Just going by the promo video on their website I reckon the stand holds about 250 but thats counting on my fingers and maybe even less if subs will be in there too but there is a big grass hill behind aswell . Lovely looking facility but no place for a final regardless of how small a crowd those teams bring.

Anyone know if Davitt Park is to also be the new Antrim HQ for the time being ?

It will probably be used as the best Belfast based venue.

Ballycastle id imagine will still be main hurling venue.

Glenavy getting a turn football wise

yeah a final should not be held there. some ground in south tyrone would even had been a better choice. another kick in the teeth for ulster hurling. wonder if it had been down v kildare where it would have been?

It won't be used as Antrim HQs as Corrigan Park is getting done up and will host both the club football and hurling finals this year as long as St Johns aren't involved

Corrigan won't be ready till August though so that rules it out for Antrim this year
