A weekend in Derry and over the border in Donegal allowed me to see Derry at their famous Brandywell home but also visit Maginn Park in Buncrana where Derry had to play in 2017, whilst Brandywell was being upgraded.
Brandywell - home of Derry City
Maginn Park is very basic and hard to imagine Derry playing the likes of Finn Harps, Cork City or Dundalk there.
Brandywell itself is in a row of 3 stadiums, Celtic Park (GAA) and then the other side of the football ground is the Brandywell Dogs stadium.

Derry is worth a visit for many reasons - and a weekend of football just adds to the highlights.
