Jimmy O'Leary RIP

On behalf of all in the club, we would like to express our deepest sympathies to the family and many friends of the late Jimmy O'Leary, Murphy Place who died suddenly last night. Jimmy's involvement with our club goes back decades and indeed continued right up to this week when he was out in Ballinroad with our seniors as they continued preparations for another championship season. He took not greater delight than in seeing all club teams in either the blue and gold or green and white achieve success on the playing fields of Waterford and beyond. He gave so much to Abbeyside / Ballinacourty but also always acknowledged what the club gave to him. The first to arrive at training and the last to leave, Jimmy's contribution to our club was nothing short of immense. From filling water bottles to organising jerseys, from turning on lights to locking gates, training and match days will never be the same again. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.

Club Notes - 15th January


Waterford GAA Awards
The above awards took place in Lawlors Hotel on Friday last and there was a sizable club contingent present given we had two players nominated for awards on the night, Brian Looby (Adult Footballer of the Year) and Colin Foley (Young Footballer of the Year).
Unfortunately, Brian was out of luck with the award going to Rathgormack’s Conor Murray, however to the delight of those club members present Colin was announced as the winner of his category.
This of course is a great personal honour for a dedicated and skilful player who has been a mainstay of many underage teams over the years, including the County Champion U-19 football team last year. Wholehearted congratulations to Colin from all in the club as he becomes the 7th Abbeyside / Ballinacourty player to win this prestigious award. We look forward to seeing him don the jersey with distinction for many years to come.
Also, over the course of the evening it was wonderful to see the 1959 team honoured, which it must be said was a wonderful gesture by the organising committee. This of course included our own Austin Flynn and it was a tremendous privilege to spend some time with and be in the company of these great men.
This was an excellently run event and credit to all involved. Hopefully we’ll have reason to attend again 12 months hence.

Membership
With the playing season commencing very shortly we ask all players to get their membership paid quickly. Also non playing members can pay their membership in the coming weeks. Membership can be paid to Kevin Tobin.

Jack the Joker
Our ever-popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Minnie’s Bar where the jackpot will be €4800 as on Sunday night Eugene Hickey was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 23 which when turned over was not the joker, but he did win €50. Shane Briggs and Mary McGrath won €25 each.

Club Bingo
Our club bingo continues in the CBS Hall this Sunday night where the jackpot is €1100.

Sympathy
On behalf of everyone in the club we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of the late Vincent Byrne, The New Line, Abbeyside. Vincent spent many years playing with the club and was indeed a member of the Ballinacourty team that 1st achieved Senior status following victory over Rathgormack in the 1965 Intermediate County Final. Subsequent to hanging up the boots he remained active in the club and was a mainstay of fundraising initiatives for many years.
Also, our thoughts are with the respective families of Breda Veale and Teresa Dalton who both passed to their eternal reward this week Both families play crucial and active roles within the club and our thoughts are with all concerned at this difficult time.

Contact
As the new season begins to click into gear if any team managers or indeed anybody within the club membership as a whole have anything they would like included here any week please feel free to drop us a line at abbeycourtypro@gmail.com. This is the primary outlet we have for keeping people up to date with what is going on so we’d encourage you to avail of this facility.

Club Notes - 1st January


U19 Hurling County Final
Our U-19 hurlers were the final club team in action in 2019 when they faced off against Ballygunner at Carrickbeg in the County Final on the 22nd of December. The weather on the day was certainly as good as could be expected for the time of year and with the pitch in decent condition both teams produced some fine passages of play in an open game. Unfortunately, however there was to be no early Christmas cheer as we ran into a fine Ballygunner outfit who were that bit more crisper in their striking and clinical in their score taking. Great credit is due to the lads who tried to the last puck but in the end, we were on the wrong side of a 2-22 to 1-11 score line. Disappointed but certainly not disheartened, there will be other days for this fine group of players. Given the truncated nature of the competition the team and mentors can be very pleased with what was achieved. Hopefully in 2020 there will be a more structured championship which will afford the lads more playing opportunities. 

Panel Eoin Fitzgerald, Patrick Fitzgerald, Johnie Treen, Daire Slevin, Colin Foley, Cian Fagan, Seanie Lannigan, Ben Flynn (Capt), Daithi Brunnock, Eoin Ahern, Willie Beresford, Michael Kiely, Niall Buckley, Jamie Walsh, Oisin Hallahan, David Byrne, Conor Kent, DJ Kiely, Dean Beresford, Rian Walsh, Sean Roche, Ben O Donovan, Jamie Moylan, John Joe Queally, Cian O Riordan, Jake Moore.

Wedding Bells
Congratulations to club stalwart John Hurney who married Lorraine Walker in Ballinroad Church on Monday last. They were joined on the day by many club members who helped the happy couple celebrate in style. On behalf of all on the club we’d like to wish John and Lorraine every happiness in their future life together.  


Jack the Joker
Our ever-popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Minnie’s Bar where the jackpot will be €4400 as on Sunday night Kay O Connor was drawn out of the drum and chose card number 26 which when turned over was not the joker, but she did win €50. Jimmy Tobin and Tony Ryan won €25 each.
The previous week Pat Earley won €50 after being drawn out and picking card 11. Eammon Power and Eoin Brackett both won €25 each.


Club Bingo
Our club bingo continues in the CBS Hall this Sunday night where the jackpot is €950.

Club Notes - 18th December


U19 Hurling County Final
The curtain finally comes down on the clubs playing season this Sunday when our Under 19 hurlers face off against Eastern Champions Ballygunner at 1.30pm in Carrickbeg. Best of luck to all involved and if you can, please make an effort to get down and support the lads.
