GAA Clubs on Google Earth

This is a great initiative. Help him find the last few!

Not sure how to find the pitches on Google Earth though?

I'm locating all the clubs in the country and putting their locations on Google Earth/Google maps. I have the vast majority done now over 1600, with just 20 or so left to do. What I'm looking for is the exact location of the clubs pitch. 

The following links are to mapping sites, where aerial photographs can be used to pinpoint pitches. They both have a double 6 digit map reference, and this is what I am looking for(centered on pitch)

For Northern Ireland, follow this link HERE
For Rep Ireland, follow this link HERE

The following are the clubs I'm still trying to locate:

Henry Joy McCrackens - Falls Park???, 
John Mitchels - Pantridge Rd?, Brians Well Rd?, Twinbrook?
Michael Dwyers - Falls Park?, Twinbrook?, 
Sean McDermotts - Cherryvale??

Grange GFC - around Fermoy somewhere, but I can't find it.
Youghal - can't find it.
Dripsey - new club, new pitch?
Ballyphehane GFC - around Tramore Rd?
Rochestown GFC - closer to passage???
Fr O'Callaghans - North side/south side???
Brian Dillons - Murmont Rd/Ave?
Shandun Rovers/Gurranbraher - Any Pitch?

Coleraine Eoghan Rua - University Pitches or do they have their own now???
