A man told me at the weekend it will hold the county semi finals and finals. Not sure how true that is. You'd imagine with the weather over the past number of months, it should be in great shape.

Agreed. Scarden is a great facility for the development of our underage and senior county teams. However, it severely lacks atmosphere for a final.
County finals (certainly championship outside of U21) should be played in our county pitch. Markeveicz is where kids and adults want to play the big games. The senior county footballers and hurlers will likely only play in it 4 or 5 or 6 times a year each. So hopefully it gets plenty of action in the next 7 or 8 weeks.
