At Lovin, we like lists.

We've curated Ireland's best walks, the most stunning lakes, the natural wonders you need to visit before you die... and many more.

But a Twitter thread going viral this morning has brought to our attention that we have never curated Ireland's most picturesque GAA pitches... and it's high time that was rectified.

Broadcaster and author Liam Farrell took to Twitter to share a photo of what he described as 'the most perfectly placed' GAA pitch, in Killybegs, Donegal, and kicked off a cracker of a debate.

The Towney pitch, just a kilometre outside the village of Kilcar up the road from Killybegs was thrown in the mix - and we agree it's a contender:

Vallymount GAA pitch is another beauty, at the tip of a landspit jutting into the River Liffey in Wicklow:
