Golf Outing
On Saturday last we held our second annual golf outing and despite the terrible weather in the days leading up to the event it turned out to be another great success. The winning team was Johnny Burns, Ray Maloney and Evan Collins who had a very good score of five under par. We would like to thank Bob O’Brien and all at the Gold Coast for their hospitality on the day and Alice O’Connor’s Bar and Liam O’Connor for sponsoring the prizes. Finally a big thank you to Colm O’Hare and Peter Phelan who organised the event this year.

On behalf of all in the club we would like to send our sympathies to the family and friends of the late Martin Ryan, Ballinacourty who passed away in Italy over the Christmas period. The Ryan family has had very strong links with our club for many years and Martin’s nephews carry on that tradition on the playing fields today. We also send our sympathies to the O’Donovan family, Murphy Place and to the Flynn family of Colligan on the death of Dermot Flynn. Finally we would like to send our sympathies to the family of the late Frankie Walsh and all in the Mt. Sion club on the passing of the former All Ireland winning captain.
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.
