Club Notes - 18th April

Joker Fundraiser
Our popular Jack the Joker Fundraiser will continue this Sunday night in The Stables Bar where the Jackpot will be €6,044. This week Marie Maloney was drawn out of the drum but did not find the joker but did win €50 euro while Kevin and Nora Tobin and Switchie O’Donnell 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.

Minor Football
On Monday evening last our Minor Footballers played their second game in the County Championship when they welcomed Dungarvan to our club grounds and we would like to thank the Dungarvan club for their co operation in re-fixing this game. The game was a typical local derby played in a good sporting spirit and with time up we led by four points but no less than seven minutes of extra time were played at the end of which the sides were level at 1:06 each. This Monday we are away to Gaultier with a 7pm throw in.

Senior Hurling
Our Senior Hurlers played two games last week. On Monday we welcomed Dunhill to our club grounds for the first round of the Sargent Cup and recorded a very good victory to move onto the Second Round of the Competition. On Thursday evening we were again at home to Fourmilewater in the County League. At the end of a good game of hurling our opponents were victorious on a score of 3:13 to 1:16.

Senior Football
On Sunday morning last we recorded our second victory in the County League as we defeated Ardmore on a score of 3:04 to 1:07 in our own club grounds. This Saturday night we open our Championship campaign when we take on Rathgormack in Fraher Field at 7:30 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.
