    Moving to Fahy's Field

    Are Mervue moving to Fahy's field this season as played or has it been put off just curious as we play them in August?

    On a side note could anybody please advice would the city centre or salthill be better to stay in terms of getting to and from the ground or anywhere else for that matter sorry if a silly question but I have never been to Terryland Park

    Stay in the city centre. That said depending on traffic you can get from lowersalthill to the ground in around 15 minutes.

    stay in the menlo park or marriot hotels, 5-10 minute walk from the grounds and perfect for transit purposes in and out of the city.

    Mervue are spending E80,000-E100,000 upgrading Fahy's Field for next season, mainly enclosing the ground, building turnstiles. I don't think any seating will be installed or anything, it will just be a pitch with a fence going around it I'd imagine

    why dont they just use the showgrounds? (Connacht's ground) it would be smaller than Terryland (guessing smaller rent) and closer to Mervue itself. No big spending needed & sharing facilities is good.

    not a definite no, no work has started yet on what is needed for the "field" to be up to first division standards and I wouldn't imagine it happening either
