Photo of the Week

Lá na gClub, 2009
L to R: Bernard Shields, Séamus O'Brien, Austin Flynn, Tony Mansfield.

This week's photo shows the raising of a commemorative flag at the club grounds on May 10th 2009 to mark the 125th anniversary of the founding of Cumann Lúthcleas Gael.  The GAA asked that club's throughout the country would acknowledge this milestone in the Association's history by hosting events on a day known as 'Lá na gClub'.  Abbeyside / Ballinacourty held a family fun afternoon which drew large crowds to St. Augustine's Park on the day.
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.
