Primary Games
Best of luck to Séan Crotty and Caoimhe Dwyer from Abbeyside NS who; will be representing Waterford in the Primary Game. They will be playing at half time during the Waterford – Clare game this Sunday. This is a great achievement for Séan and Caoimhe and hopefully one of the many times they will represent their county.

Under 9’s (players born in 2003)
After a quiet few weeks, the under 9’s played a few matches in the last week or so.
First up our under 9’s got invited to play in the Ballyduff under 10 tournament where they won one game and were beaten by only 3pts and 1 pt in the other two matches. It was a terrific team performance against the under 10’s which no doubt will stand to them for next year.
We also travelled out to Brickey Rangers to play few matches which was followed by up by a trip to Youghal GAA Club to play an under 9 blitz last Saturday.
We had 2 teams of 10 under 9 players represent the club which saw them each play games against Cobh, Fermoy and Youghal. Both teams gave a great account of themselves and all enjoyed a great mornings hurling.
Many thanks to all the parents and supporters who travelled and supported the teams.
Many thanks to Alan Geary from Youghal GAA for the invite and for the party bags, tea and sandwiches served afterwards in their beautiful clubhouse.

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.

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.
