    Just wondering if anyone knows how much it would cost a gaa club to put in floodlights?

    Varies considerably on quality of lights you get
    Do you want match quality or just lights for training?

    Wha too you land to do with them? Rent out the pitch? Training? Matches?
    Remember that installing lights on most pitches will wreck the pitch, even with limited usage. Clever clubs install lights on their 'second' pitch.
    Cost benefit analysis says forget it!!
    Have seen them vary from @65k (useless) to €150k (super). Get yourself an electrical engineer to draw a plan, having first decided the potential usage.

    Use €100,000 as a guide at least. If eligible for Lotto grant funding you could get a fair chunk of it paid for

    Possibly need a generator too as ESB may struggle if your not located well for them. Although the upside of a gen is you pay before you use it so no nasty bills landing in the club.
