One I noticed was missing was Lansdowne and Wesley who have spare pitches on Ballychorus Road up near Enniskerry where pretty much all Junior sides are sent to play them


Thanks for that. Was only passing there a few weeks ago. Forgot about it completely.

the directions for UCD are right, but Greenfield Rd only has pedestrian access, and is a pay and display area. Buses etc will have to go on up the N11 and turn in at the sign for UCD, follow the directions in there to get free parking

Arklow RFC is just on the west side of the N11 at Ballyrichard, about 3-4kms north of Arklow. The townland of Ballyrichard only appears on Google Maps 5 zoom levels from max. zoom.

I've added that, although I'm not sure of the exact location. Let me know if it's close ;)

Rathdrum RFC - on approach to rathdrum on R752 from North. Right turn immediately after crossing the river. Google maps has it as an extension of lower street. Grounds are at the end of this road.

Apparently, they're beside the North County Cricket Club in Balrothery. I found the Cricket Clubs location already on google maps so have added a new point beside that :)

Limecat, you're a star! I've been planning of doing something similar for a few weeks now, by doing up custom POI's for Garmin Satnav, but have been putting off as the initial stage involves specifying all the locations before extracting as a .csv file.

With your permission, I'll try out the locations of clubs you've marked off and see if they'll work on satnav. If so, I'll post the csv file for others to use (the csv should be compatible with most satnavs. I'll post instructions too).
I'll try to get it sorted before the end of the week.

Yeah. I got a PM from somebody during the week to say that they'd added it to the site. :)

Longford RFC is on the wrong road. It's down Lisbrack road. There's done a google flag for it here (yours is B):

Hi
The directions to Wicklow RFC while technically correct are using very minor roads without signposts. I would suggest these directions coming from Dublin or North Wicklow

From N11 take left signposted Rathnew/Wicklow then at roundabout take the 1st exit - R772 (signposted Rathnew/Wicklow)

Continue forward onto - R772 Entering Rathnew R772

Continue straight through Rathnew until you reach Wicklow.

Turn right at the Grand Hotel onto the Marlton Road R751 and continue for approx 1 Mile.

Take right onto Ashtown lane. Wicklow RFC is on the left after 300m.
