Juvenile Update
Our U8 footballers had a great morning down in the SETU Arena last Saturday morning (18th May) playing in the All County blitz. It's great for the boys to get to play in this fine facility against boys from lots of other clubs in the county. They had great fun and continue their training every Saturday morning.
 
U13 Division 1 Plate Final
Our U13's travelled to Walsh Park on Saturday morning (25th May) where they played Stradbally in the division 1 plate final. The lads put in a great effort in what was a tight contest but unfortunately lost out at the final whistle.
 
U15 Division 1 Football County Champions
It was another journey to Waterford on Monday (20th May), this time for our U15 footballers. Gaultier were the opposition and our boys had a strong focus going into the game having lost to our eastern rivals in the first round of the championship. From the outset it was clear that the Ballinacourty boys were in the right frame of mind and took an early lead. As expected Gaultier rallied began to gain a foothold towards the end of the first half. It was in the second half that our lads really kicked on and showed very impressive heart and teamwork, which when combined with quality football, meant that they were going to finish the match as the champions. Well done boys (and coaches) on a very impressive season.
 
Feile 2024 Hurling
On Monday (27th May) the qualifiers for the 2024 Feile hurling took place at our club grounds where we played. Keep an eye out on social media for updates.

Academy Update
It was another lovely sunny Saturday morning at the field and the academy boys really made the most of it.  There was loads of hurling, football and fun throughout all the age groups from U6 to U9.  Our academy is a really enjoyable experience for any young boy who wants to get active, develop their movement and agility while learning the skills of hurling and football.  If you have a son aged between 5 and 10 who might be interested in joining in on the fun, bring them along any Saturday morning and we'll look after them.
 
U10
The U10s welcomed An Ghealtacht and Gaultier to the Burgery on what was a beautiful Sunday morning.  They played just under an hour of really competitive football and relished the challenge from our visitors.

U10 Footballers

U15
Tuesday night (14th May) was an "up and down" night for our U15 footballers. The division 4 boys played with great heart against St Pat's but unfortunately lost out at the final whistle. They were disappointed with the result but on reflection they can be proud of their performances throughout the football season.
In contrast, the division 1 team had a convincing win over Stradbally in Kill. The boys have been building momentum as they've navigated the championship and will need to make a further step up in the county final against Gaultier on Monday evening (20th May). Best of luck boys we're all behind ye!
 
Junior League victory makes history for Abbeyside Camogie Club!
Last Saturday evening club history was made for our Adult club, when they won the league final, a first for the club!  Our adult team has only been in place for the last few years, and this group has gone from strength to strength!  Their win was dedicated to their loved and never forgotten teammate Shauna McGrath, who lined out many times with this team in her No 1 jersey.  Thanks to Ballyduff Upper for a sporting game.  Well done girls, you have worked hard for this win, and wishing you the very best of luck in the championship!

Academy
The sunshine last Saturday morning was very welcome and we had a big turnout for our academy.  It was great to see all the boys with hurleys in hand running, jumping and pulling on the ball as they had great craic with their friends and coaches.  Thanks to all the refreshment crew that are on hand rain hail or shine to dole out the treats after training.  On warm days like last Saturday, the juice and biscuits are essential for cool-down and recovery!
The only gang that weren’t at the field on the day was our U9’s who were playing a hurling blitz in Waterford against Ballygunner and Mount Sion.
 
U13
Our U13 footballers are awaiting a date for the div 1 plate final, when they will take on our neighbours Stradbally.  Best of luck boys.
 
U15
Both our U15 football panels are in action this week in their respective county semi finals.  On Tuesday (14th May) the division 1 panel will travel to Kill to take on Stradbally while the division 4 boys play St. Pat’s in the Dungarvan club grounds.  Good luck to all.

U8 and U10 Blitz
Great fun was had on the bank holiday Monday with Abbeyside camogie hosting their first blitz of the year for our U8 and U 10 age groups. We were delighted to host Roanmore, Portlaw, Lismore and Modeligo. This is always a great day, and the girls love to put their skills into action! We had a great turnout, and also used the skills of some recently qualified "Young Whistlers" Orla, Abbie and Cathal - keep up the great work!
Thanks to all of our super U8 and U10 girls for putting on such a great performance, thanks to all of the coaches for all the work that you do, and to all of our volunteers on the day without whom, it would not have been possible.
 
Training for these age groups and U6s continues every Friday evening at Abbeyside GAA, new members always welcome!

Academy
Our academy is for boys aged between five and ten years old and runs every Saturday morning from 10am. Our enthusiastic coaches are always on hand to make sure that any newcomers receive a warm welcome and lots of fun. The field was a little quieter on Saturday, due mainly to boys playing matches. The U8's were on the road to play an enjoyable blitz in Cappoquin and the U10's welcomed Naomh Brid to the Burgery on Saturday afternoon.




U11
The U11’s had a busy week starting off on Monday evening with the boys first hurling fixture of the year. this was a Deise Óg Blitz, one team travelled to Lismore taking on the challenge of Lismore and Stradbally and the other team playing at home against Cois Bride and St Olivers. They followed this up on Friday when they welcomed Killeagh U11s for a home fixture and having had a game under their belt you could already see the progress made. The conditions were great, and all the boys contributed, the games were extremely competitive which is sure to stand them in good stead as the season progresses. Special mention to young whistler Cathal McGrath who refereed two of the games on Friday night and was exemplary in the way he dealt with the children and managed the games.

U11 Hurlers

 
Young Whistler
Well done to Cathal McGrath who refereed his first matches since completing a refereeing course as part of the transition year programme. He was busy over the weekend, officiating for the U11's on Friday and the U10's on Saturday. Well done Cathal!
 
U13 Division 1 Football – Round 4
Well done to our boys who drew against Gaultier on Wednesday (24th April) evening on a score line of 2-9 to 2-9. Playing against the breeze in the first half, Ballinacourty got off to a great start and played a lovely brand of football. We had 4 different players that scored and seemed to be in the driving seat. However, Gaultier with less time on the ball, were clinical in front of goal and did not miss their opportunities. At half time, Ballinacourty were down by 2 points on a scoreline of 1-5 to 2-3. In the second half Ballinacourty started strong and kicked over 3 lovely points. Gaultier stayed in touch with 3 frees. As the game played out it was very close and could have gone anyway. Well done to Gary Kiely for his great block down to deny Gaultier from scoring in the last play of the game.
We await the results of Stradbally vs Rathgormack to see if we progress to the county semi final.
 
U15
It was a very busy week for the U15 boys. On Monday (22nd April) the division 1 boys hosted St. Olivers and put in a very good performance to win with a scoreline of 2-14 to 2-4. Unfortunately, our full forward Alfie Wyse suffered a broken finger and will be out of action for a few weeks. We wish him a speedy recovery.
On the same evening, our U15 division 4 boys travelled to play Portlaw. They got off to an excellent start knocking over 1-04 in the first 10 minutes. Portlaw came back into the game with a couple of goals of their own and it was nip and tuck for the remainder of the match. The work rate and spirit of the Ballinacourty boys was admirable and it was this work rate, along with some lovely football, that resulted in the boys claiming a two point victory with a scoreline of 3-12 to 5-04.
The next round of the U15 championship is on 1st May when the division 1 boys travel to play Stradbally while the division 4 panel host St. Pats. Best of luck boys!
 
Féile 2024
On Sunday we had 25 U15's in Stradbally to take part in the Féile 2024 qualifiers. A win over Stradbally and a narrow defeat to Gaultier meant that we didn't qualify, with Gaultier going on to represent Waterford in the national competition.

U16 First Championship Game Win against Ballyduff
