Juvenile Notes - 20th June

Under 9’s (players born in 2003)
Our under 9’s travelled across to Dungarvan last Saturday to play an under 9 blitz in the Richie Harty Memorial. There we played three good and challenging games against Midleton, Killeagh and Dungarvan and the boys gave a great account of themselves where we excelled in all three matches. Following the event, Alan Harty made the presentation of medals to the players.
Many thanks to David Burke for the invite and well done on a well organised event. Thanks to all in Dungarvan GAA for the tea & sandwiches and their kind hospitality afforded to players, coaches and supporters.

U12/ U11
Our under 11’s were invited by Lismore to play in their annual Ber Ryan hurling tournament. We played De La Salle and Fr. O’Neills in the first two rounds, we played well here to record two wins and went on the play the hosts in the final. This was a tremendous game on hurling with very little between the teams at half time, Lismore leading 3-0 to 2-2. In the second half our lads started in tremendous fashion and play excellent hurling with everyone playing their hearts out. This skill level on both teams was very high for this age group. The Abbeyside boys finished strong to record the win. This I suspect will be the first of many great battles between these two teams in the coming years. Well done to both teams and all the parents that were there were treated to a great game of hurling. We would like to thank Lismore for the invite and for the refreshments and catering on the day.
Panel: Michael Kiely, Eoin Ahearne, Senan Travers, Cian O’Riordan, Sean Roche, Patrick Fitzgerald, Oisin Hallahan, Ethan Raher, David Hayes, Jamie Power, Darragh Slevin, Jack O’Riordan, David Kiely, Colin Foley, Niall Buckley, Sean Sullivan, Alec Norris.

U12 Panel - Winners of Ber Ryan Memorial Tournament
Well done to Caoimhe Dwyer and Séan Crotty from Abbeyside NS who played Primary Game on Sunday last. This was a fantastic achievement for Caoimhe and Séan. Well done again.
Congratulations to Abbeyside NS who capped off a fantastic year by winning the County A hurling championship against St. Declan’s. The boys already won the Western hurling, Western and County football and mini 7’s in hurling and football. This is an incredible achievement for all the boys involved and great credit should also go to the teachers involved in the training of these teams.

It is situated within the Parish of Abbeyside, Ballinroad and Garranbane.

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.
