So I fell down a Wiki black hole last and I ended up looking up the SPL stadia. I was surprised as they are all pretty good grounds but (outside of Ibrox and Celtic Park) nothing exceptional and certainly achievable in this league.
What are peoples overall opinions of our current Stadia and hopes for the future?

Plenty of crap stadiums; Bohs, Sligo and Derry all standing out in my mind.

The Jodi Stand is good but they shoved us in the Des Kelly stand last time, full of massive weeds, no toilets and no food/drink outlets. The other two stands look even worse.

Ah yeah it does look fairly sh*t, we rarely have proper away ends open for us so not been on a lot of them

Oriel away is a disgrace, as is drogs but I love the place.

Cork, Galway, Pats all good grounds. UCD a nice set up too

The Showgies? Ah stop. Has to be top 3 grounds in the league.
Even the away end is comfortable compared to some of the pig pens in other grounds.

Bitored, setting up a thread to have a go at the league because once again Sligo after their brief tilt at the windmill are back in their first for existence. If you live Sligo,expect the knock on the door soon.

Try the Shed or the deathtrap that is the Connaught Street stand. Unnaceptable at every level.
 
Oriel, Dalymount, Tolka and United Park are unsafe and not fit for purpose. Tallaght, Turners Cross and the Showgrounds are perfectly fine and the best smaller stadia on the island. The rest are int he 'ok' area.

Sligo is a lovely ground, certainly far from being in the "crap" category. 

Turners Cross is the best in the league, 4 all covered all seated stands right up into the pitch with about 6 pubs within a 5 minute walking distance. New toilet block being built at the away end also. Nothing like it.

Tallaght and Eamonn Deacy would be great if only the ends were filled out somehow, especially in Tallaght. 

Richmond Park is by far my favourite ground in Dublin, nice and close to the pitch again.

Oriel is just dangerous but thats been done to death so we'll leave that be. 

Longford is a weird one cause its a nice design but its in the middle of nowhere.

 United Park, Fit for demolition, 2/10
 Oriel Park, 1 old stand with bar facilities, time for a major facelift 3/10
 Eammon Deasy Park, 1 decent stand and 1 other all seater stand, serves its purpose 6/10

RTID clueless again.

I played in a host of county grounds and LOI grounds and I can safely say the GAA county stadiums are way ahead of LOI grounds for the most part.

The dressing rooms in Dayler Athlone Towns "were" a disgrace.
Inchicore dressing rooms were as basic as you come, pretty poor when i played there.

Looking forward to a response if it ever comes, RTID usually out of his depth regarding most subjects but his crusade against the GAA is laughable LOL

A number of them. The GAA recently had to reduce capacity in almost all of them as there were massive health and safety concerns. Most county grounds are aged kips - even relatively modern onces like Parnell Park are nothing special.
How many of the listed would you consider even ok?
