Does your club use the local schools pitches, gym, hall, or other facilities on a regular basis or temporarily when pitches are unusable?

majority of schools here do not have their own facilities bar maybe a training pitch not suitable for games.
So any games need to be played in a club pitch. I think they are now mostly played during the day to prevent clashes with club training/games.

In fairness, I'm not sure there'd be enough space there for a GAA pitch. A soccer pitch is significantly smaller.
