Membership Forms
Membership forms and Code of Conduct forms for the under 12’s & 14’s will be given out during the week. Coaches are asked for their assistance in getting this done this week and parents/guardians and players are asked to sign, complete and return as soon as possible. These forms facilitate player registration and as the championship is just starting the forms for these age groups must be returned to the secretary by the end of the week.
Many thanks to all of those in the under 16’s and minors who have already completed and returned their forms, your prompt co-operation is much appreciated.

New Members Welcome
We would encourage any of our young members to bring a friend with them to their next training session and they can see at first hand what our club can offer them. Parents are especially welcome as well to see the coaching sessions and speak with the coaches afterwards should they have any questions.

Walk a Mile, Share a Smile Update
This week we're back walking for the club and SERT, so with over €500 collected for our club so far, well done to all and.....keep on walking!

Harty Cup
The Harty Cup final takes place this Sunday at 2.30pm between Colaistí na nDéise and Nenagh CBS. We would like to wish the best of luck to Eamon, David, Evan, Brian and Laurence. 
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.
