Club Notes - 14th November

 Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 28
Our popular Jack the Joker Fundraiser will continue this Sunday night in Kennedy’s Live at 9:30pm where the Jackpot will be €4,664 as on Sunday night Pat Queally was drawn out of the drum but did not find the Joker, however he does win €50, while Caroline Lynch and Mike Queally won €25.  We appeal to all our supporters to continue purchasing the tickets as the funds raised will go towards our ongoing development works at the club grounds.

The Brawl in the Hall
Our club has teamed up with Brickey Rangers in a novel fundraising event called “The Brawl in the Hall” organised by White Collar Boxing.  Twelve boxers from each club will square up to one another in three 1½ minute rounds of action.  Training has commenced so all boxers will be in prime condition in time for the big night.  The event takes place on Saturday, 15th December at Dungarvan Sports Centre with tickets priced at €10.  These will be available shortly.  More details to follow in the coming weeks.

Notification for the upcoming AGM which will take place on December 8th at 8pm in Abbeyside School has been delivered to all members.  Any member who supplied an email address on their membership form earlier in the year will have been notified by email.  If any member failed to receive notification, please contact the club secretary to obtain notification.

Club Bingo
This Sunday we will be staging a Monster Bingo in The Park Hotel where there will be a prize fund of €2,500. The bingo will start at 3pm and we would encourage as many of our members as possible to get along on the day and support it.

Club Committee Meeting
There will be a meeting of the club committee on Thursday, November 22nd at 8 pm.

On behalf of all in the club we would like to send our sympathies to the family and many friends of the late Tony Wright who passed away recently. Along with his brothers Frankie, Ollie and Joe, Tony played for the club winning divisional and county honors. Ar dheis lámh Dé go raibh a hanam usail.
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.
Abbeyside/Ballinacourty GAA Club, Dungarvan, Co. Waterford, Ireland.
