Juvenile Notes - 29th August

Minor Hurling
Our Minor Hurlers played Erins Own at home last Monday evening in what was a great game of hurling. A great team performance was put in from all and Abbeyside edged home with a win on a scoreline of 1-14 to 1-12. This game doubled up as the Kieran Lennon Memorial Cup. Tony Mansfield presented the cup to team captain Eoin Bergin after the game and for the second year The Kieran Lennon Memorial Cup stayed in the village. Our Minor hurlers are out again this Wednesday evening when they play Clonea in Clonea.

U16 Hurling
Our U16 game against Sacred Heart was once again cancelled on Wednesday last as Sacred Heart were unable to field a team.

Under 13 &14
We had a very busy time last week in this age group. Tuesday evening our near neighbours travelled over from Dungarvan on a very wet and miserable night, this was a very competitive game played with high intensity and was close for the first 15 minutes, with both teams exchanging a few points. We then made the break through and got two goals before half time. In the second have we added two more to come away with a 4-6 to 0-7 win. Thursday night saw both of our under 14 teams in action. We played Mt. Sion in division 1 in Waterford. We got off to a quick start here and were always holding an advantage. It finished 0-6 to 2-7. Our second team hosted St. Mollerans and after a few false starts in this division and a few walkovers this team finally got to play hurling. Both teams were evenly matched throughout. Our boys started to get on top mid way through the second half and came away with a 3-9 to 3-2 win.

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.
