Club Notes - 22nd February

Joker Fundraiser
Our popular Jack the Joker Fundraiser will continue this Sunday night in The Stables Bar where the Jackpot will be €3,624. This week Jim Egan was drawn out of the drum but did not find the joker but did win €50 while Michael “Cowboy” Cosgrave and Anthony Power won €25. We appeal to all our supporters to continue purchasing the tickets as the funds raised will go towards our ongoing development works at the club grounds.

Club Bingo
Our club bingo will take place this Sunday night and this Sunday we return to the CBS Hall where the Jackpot is €1,750.

Railway Cup
On Sunday afternoon last Munster defeated Leinster in the Railway Cup Semi Final in Parnell Park where our club was honored to have no fewer than three players on the Munster panel.
Gary Hurney started the game at full forward and scored 1-02, Shane Briggs was introduced in the second half and Patrick Hurney was a member of the panel. It must be many a year since a Waterford club had three players on the Munster Football squad and we congratulate the lads on this fantastic recognition and wish them the very best of luck ahead of Sunday’s final against Ulster.

Harty Cup Final
On behalf of all in the club we would like to wish Colaistí na nDéise the very best of luck ahead of their Harty Cup Final against Nenagh CBS this Sunday in Cashel. Representing our club on the panel are David and Evan Collins, Brian Looby, Laurence Power and Eamonn Crotty. Please note that programmes will be on sale in Dungarvan Shopping Centre over the weekend so please show your support for the team by purchasing these.

Booking of Pitches
We would like to ask all team managers to please ensure that they have booked the pitch with Bernard Shields before they arrange training sessions.

Please note that membership can now be paid to Jonathan O’Donovan or any member of the committee.

Club Committee Meeting
The next meeting of the club committee will take place in The Parish Office on Thursday night March 1st at 8 pm.
Club History
Abbeyside / Ballinacourty GAA Club was formed in 1967 as a result of the amalgamation of Abbeyside Hurling and Football Clubs and Ballinacourty Football Club. It is situated within the Parish of Abbeyside, Ballinroad and Garranbane. Located on the eastern side of the River Colligan, it forms the northern and eastern shorelines of Dungarvan Harbour from Abbeyside Church to Ballinacourty Lighthouse
Development Fund
Abbeyside/Ballinacourty GAA Club has been growing at a dramatic pace over the past 10 years with the population of our parish increasing rapidly. We must ensure that we have the best facilities for all our players. We want to ensure that the next generation have the facilities that they need and deserve. We are asking supporters and friends to support this project over the next five years.
Strategic Plan
Past generations have had their visions for the future of our club. These are our current aims and with these achieved we hope to hand on the club to future generations in the same healthy state it was passed onto us.
Abbeyside/Ballinacourty GAA Club, Dungarvan, Co. Waterford, Ireland.
