The hurling wall lighting for St Martins GAA Club in Co Wexford was provided using S Series Floodlights. This Sports Floodlighting provides high illuminated levels, but with minimum glare (especially as both sides of the Hurling Wall are used). The Flat glass Luminaires ensure the scheme is dark skies compliant and provides minimum intrusion to the neighbours.
Similar schemes have been installed in several GAA Clubs in recent years.
Typically, the light levels required for Gaelic Football, Soccer or Rugby are 500 Lux (Class 1), 200 Lux (Class 11) or 75 Lux (Class 111). Hurling has higher requirements because the ball is smaller and moving faster – 500 Lux (Class 1), 300 Lux (Class 11) and 200 Lux (Class 111).
Lighting Class 1 refers to National or International competition. Lighting Class 11 refers to County or principal Local Clubs competition. Lighting Class 111 refers to local or small club competition or training, or school sports and recreation.
