The SSE Aitricity League lost its best stadium from 2014 with Limerick leaving Thomond Park. Here's how we rank the 2015 League of Ireland stadiums.
1) Turners Cross - Cork City
4 sides, all covered, all seated. The best in the league by some distance.
2) Tallaght Stadium - Shamrock Rovers
Only 2 stands but they're both well appointed with decent facilities to match. Dublin's best LOI stadium will be even better when the rumoured 3rd stand is built.
3) Showgrounds - Sligo Rovers
Only 3 sides but a fine main stand. Training facilities on the same grounds a bonus
4) Eamonn Deacy Park - Galway United
A terrific main stand which made a welcome return to the LOI last year
5) Richmond Park - St Patrick's Athletic
Plenty of faults in Richmond but having 4 sides open for big games is a big plus.
6) Dalymount Park - Bohemians
The self-styled home of Irish football isn't what it used to be but the Jodi Stand alone bumps it up here. Plans are afoot to bring it back to life.
7) RSC - Waterford United
The running track hurts but 2 nice stands now in the RSC
8) City Calling Stadium - Longford Town
The 'Flansiro' is all seater but 3/4 of that is open to the elements. Being in the middle of nowhere is a hassle too.
9) Athlone Town Stadium - Athlone Town
10) Tolka Park - Shelbourne
The former jewel in the LOI has fallen into severe disrepair. It may not be open much longer.
11) Brandywell - Derry City
One big curved stand is it's best feature. A dog track with traps blocking view of some is it's worst.
12) St Colman's Park - Cobh Ramblers
Home of the best little stand behind a goal in the league.
13) Oriel Park - Dundalk
The home of the Champions is also home to the worst away section in the league
14) United Park - Drogheda United
Maybe the most disjointed/throw together stadium in the league
15) Carlisle Grounds - Bray Wanderers
The coldest stadium in Ireland is made up of a pop-up stand, an uncovered stand and a grassy hill
16) Ferrycarrig - Wexford Youths
A nice junior set up with a clubhouse that sells pasta and wine. Another pop up stand.
17) Belfield Bowl - UCD
One stand, some of which is covered. Still better than the old Belfield Park.
18) Finn Park - Finn Harps
A few seats in a barn and the rest of it terraced. They're moving soon and the plans look good.
19) Jackman Park - Limerick
At least it has some seats and its close to the train station. We'll rank Market's Field when we see it.
20) Stradbrook - Cabinteely FC
Blackrock College's ground has no seats and no cover. It does have a bar though.
We ranked them based on spectator comforts and amenities. Playing surface didn't come into it. Disagree? Let us know
