Back in the mid-60s my club Dundalk had a bit of drive for ground improvements. Floodlights were installed, the pitch was rotated 90 degrees and some building work was done.
This is an interesting programme cover from March 1967 (FAI Cup game v Cork Hibernians). The cover states "Dundalk FC Oriel Park" but as the back cover explains the photo is aspirational, and an idea of what the completed ground might look like! 55 years later it doesn't look anywhere near as good as the photo, incidentally Sad

So my question is what's the ground? I'm guessing it's a UK ground, photographed 50s/60s
