Due to the fact that all the senior clubs are in action themselves, they had to play the games at the home venues for intermediate/junior clubs - and there are a limited amount of those. It wouldn't be fair to ask people from Kilcormac or Kinnitty to steward at one game while their own club is playing elsewhere.SearingDrive wrote:Could the Tullamore v Clareen game be fixed for Kinnitty or Kilcormac rather than Clara, which is nearer Tullamore than Clareen.
Secondly, you won't always have neutral venues that are equidistant from the two participating sides. You'll often have games played at grounds that are closer to one side than the other, that's just the way things work out. Last time out Clareen had the advantage of playing five minutes down the road in Coolderry, while their opponents (Rynaghs) had a much longer trip. In round three, Rynaghs had the advantage of playing Tullamore in a neighbouring club ground (Moystown) while Tullamore had the longer journey - swings and roundabouts.
