Healy Park set to unveil lights

Healy Park in Omagh is set to become the first provincial ground to unveil its new floodlighting system.

Grounds in all four provinces are to have lighting installed under a scheme announced by the GAA last year.

Tyrone's premier venue is almost ready to flick the switch but will not host the Ulster U21 Football final as hoped.

"The floodlights are up and look very impressive. Unfortunately we won't be able to test them for a couple of weeks yet," said county chairman Pat Darcy.

"There's a bit of a delay with the generator, but we still expect to be the first provincial ground to light up.

"There was some hope that we could host the Ulster U21 Championship final over the Easter weekend to officially open the lights but that's on hold at the minute.

"It will be later in the year, and who knows, it may be our county final."

Darcy is looking forward to an exciting new era for gaelic football in the county, with regular evening ties, including televised games.

"It's a brilliant development for the GAA in Tyrone. They're excellent lights, ideal for television cameras."
