    Who owns and operates Buckley Park these days? It's still a shame there's no LOI team there anymore, it was a lovely ground and city to visit.

    I know the KDL has used it for Gaynor Cup, etc...just not sure if they own or lease it!
    Also, good to hear a local side at least is using it regularly. It's a lovely little ground.
