St Patrick’s Day Parade
Just to say well done to all of our young members who took part in the St. Patrick’s Day parade on Saturday. There was a great turnout on the day and it was fantastic to see so many involved. Well done to all.

Membership Forms
Membership forms and Code of Conduct forms for most age groups are been given out during the week. Coaches are asked for their assistance in getting this done in an orderly and efficient manner and parents/guardians and players are asked to sign, complete and return as soon as possible.
Many thanks to all of those who have already completed and returned their forms, your prompt co-operation is much appreciated.

New Members Welcome!
 If anyone is interested in having their child join our club, we would invite them to come out to the pitch and speak with the coaches who will be happy to answer any questions you might have.
We would also encourage any of our existing 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.

Congratulations to all the boys and girls Scoil Mhuire who made their confirmation recently. Many thanks to the teachers who helped make the day a great success.

Walk a Mile, Share a Smile Update
Just to remind everyone to get walking on Monday evenings at 6.30pm as we are coming into the last few weeks of the walk. Participants fill in an envelope at Centra and show whether they wish to contribute to the Juvenile GAA or SERT. The fee is €1 per mile and the walk is from Centra, out the New Line, down by St. Augustine’s College in Duckspool and in the Burgery and back to Centra, which is just about 2 miles, so the cost per walk would be €2.
The organised walk takes place each Monday at 6.30pm but people can walk anytime they wish. We will keep a record of the people walking and a chart will be available after a few weeks. That’s the reason for writing your name on the envelope. The walk has been a great success for the juvenile club and its various other beneficiaries thus far and we urge people to get out in force for the final few weeks. 
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.
