Juvenile Notes - 24th October

Langan Cup
On Saturday 20th October, our U8s hosted the Langan Cup, competing against the finest that Waterford and Cork had to offer in Mt. Sion from the east, Lismore from the west and representing Cork were St. Finbarr’s bringing two teams with them on the day. The games started at 11.30 with teams of 12 aside all to play each other in games of 16 mins per game. A total of 83 scores were witnessed throughout the tournament with fine individual and team performances on show for all to see. Abbeyside ran out winners on the day ensuring that they kept the silverware in the village for the next 12 months. Congrats lads and well done on a strong team effort. Many thanks must be given out to everybody involved starting with the referees Eoin Kiely and Eamon Crotty who were given late notice the night before but were delighted to help out. Thanks lads. Thanks to the parents yet again who supplied food for the travelling teams and to the mothers who served it up. Your support is much appreciated. Thanks to the club for supplying crisps and drinks for 80 children and to the teams that travelled from afar to make this event an enjoyable one. But most of all to the Langan family who was represented by Mary Rossiter, June McShane and June’s son Padraic and grandchildren Rosie, Sally and Sarah who presented to cup to the villagers on a beautiful sunny afternoon. Thanks to all involved on the day from the U8 squad.

Club History

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.
