Under 13/14
We played in the second round of the U14 Football last Friday evening. Our lads played very well and went on to record a good win.

Panel: Aaron Beresford, Jack Kiely, Shane Ahearne, James Beresford, Padraig Moore, Bearach Moore, Gearoid Hallinan, Tom Looby, Neil Montgomery, Patrick Power, Ryan Daly, Darragh McGrath, Tony Collins, Sean Whelan Barrett, Sean Crotty, David Montgomery.

On Sunday both our under 13 teams played at home against the Brickey’s and Kilrossanty. Both games were played at the same time. The team against the Brickey’s played well and were always in control.

Panel: Aaron Beresford, Jack Kiely, Shane Ahearne Padraig Moore, Bearach Moore, Gearoid Hallinan, Tom Looby, Sean Whelan Barrett, Sean Crotty, David Montgomery, Tommy Walsh, Fionn Gibson Kiely, Shane Kiely, James Riordan, Daithi Brunnock, Johnny Treen, Mark Towmey.

The second team played Kilrossanty this was a much better game. While we got off to a slow start and we were 1 -6 to a 0-1 down at have time. The second half we started much the stronger and got 2 good quick goals to put us back in the game. For the last 15 mins there was only one or two pts between the two teams and both teams had a great battle to the final whistle, where we lost out.  Final score was 3-4 to 2-9. It is games like this that really show the benefit of having two teams in this Championship where 32 players play under 13 football Sunday morning for the club all getting a lot of game time.

Panel:  Cain Power, Jack Dwane, Paddy Dwane, John Power, Michael Lenihan, Sean Kent, Fergal Roche, Cian Fagan, Jamie Walsh, Ben Flynn, Jake O’Riordan, Ruairi Cusack, Meldan O’Dwyer, Michael Kiely.

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.
