    The pitch and grounds are still in pretty reasonable shape for considering the lack of (no) activity there anymore. The odd night the floodlights are turned on but I guess it's just routine checks to see if everything is working still.

    It's a great shame that the local junior competition finals aren't played there - there's benefit to both the grounds owners (exposure, extra bodies for maintenance) and the KDL to play them there (far more attraction than current venue to players imo).

    But with the K&DL having invested greatly in their own pitches (about 200 yards away) there's not much hope of the grounds being used for that purpose - which is a shame as I've dreamed of scoring in Buckley Park since standing behind the goals as a kid.

    The army play their inter barracks comps there still I think. They were the last official match I was at there in 2010.

    Any Kilkenny supporters out there know if the club today has any involvement in underage football? Surely a revival such as Cobh's could materialise at some stage?
