Juvenile Notes - 10th October

Under 12
Last Friday saw the final night of the under 12 Football League. We played Dungarvan in Dungarvan. We played with a lot of determination from the start and notched up some quick goals with some of the opening plays. At half time we switched our forwards and backs and rotated our subs throughout. This was a strong display by the Ballinacourty boys.
Panel: Shane Kiely, Daithi Brunnock, Johnny Treen, Meldan Dwyer, Jamie Walsh, Michael Kiely, Senan Travers, Patrick Fitzgerald, Jake O’Riordan, Dean Beresford, Eoin Ahearne, Ethan Raher, Michael Troy, Ben Flynn, Oisin Hallahan and Sean Roche.

Harty Cup
Coláistí na nDéise continued the defence of their Harty Cup crown with victory over St. Caimins, Shannon on a scoreline of 3-12 to 0-11. This gives the boys two wins from two games. Next up for the boys is St. Flannan’s of Clare, next Wednesday the 17th. Well done to all of our club members on the panel.

Under 10
We have the annual Danny Lenihan hurling tournament this Saturday in our club grounds, all players to be in attendance for 10.30 am.

Under 10 win St Finbarr’s Hurling Tournament
Our under 10's travelled last Saturday to St Finbarr’s in Cork for the John 'Bawnie' Mehegan Perpetual Hurling Tournament, this prestige tournament has been run for the last three years where four clubs St Finbarr’s, Blackrock, Durlas Óg, and Abbeyside had two equal teams of twelve competing and it is the best aggregate of the two teams which counts on the day. We had to call on the under 8's to make up the two teams as only four of the under 9's were available on the day and my God did the nine and eight year olds step up to the mark. Both our teams played the Rockies in the first game and we ran out winners in these games. Our next opponents were Durlas Óg and again we had some great performances here from all the players, where one of our teams won and the other had a draw. Our last game was against the host team and both our teams dug team to run out convincing winners. We then had the medal presentations to all the teams for participating, then and our winning captains on the day Tony Dwyer and Colin Foley received the John Mehegan Cup. Well done to all the players and especially the younger ones which travelled on this most enjoyable day and the experience gained can only help them develop in the future, thanks to Justin, Michael and Eddie and to all the parents for travelling and a special thanks to the Barrs for the invitation and the catering on a great day out.

Our panel for the day:
Calum Beresford, Alec Norris, Eoin Flynn, Colin Foley, Tony Dwyer, Tadgh Collins, DJ Kiely, Jack Riordan, Niall Buckley, Jamie Moylan, Daniel Treen, Darragh Slevin, Sean O Sullivan, Ben O Donovan, Stephen Lake, William Beresford, Oisin O Riordan, Conor Kent, John Joe Queally, Jack McGrath, Eoin Kiely, Charlie Treen, Charlie Gough, Fergie Slevin, Michael Walsh, Edmond Spratt, Rian Cosgrove, Sean Callaghan, Thomas Nee.

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.
