Juvenile Notes - 23rd January

Gum Shields
From January 1st 2013, all players playing in all grades up to and including minors are required to wear a mouth guard in all football games and training sessions. It will be a matter for the club to ensure this rule is adhered to at all training sessions. Players and coaches should note that players will not be insured under the player injury scheme if they are not wearing a mouth guard. Therefore as a club we are obliged to enforce this rule at all training sessions.

Harty Cup
Everyone in the club would like to send their congratulations out to the Dungarvan Colleges Harty Cup team on their outstanding win over BCS last Wednesday on a scoreline of 14 points to 10. This was a quarter final tie and therefore they have now secured a spot in the semi-final of this historic competition against Thurles CBS to be played on the 3rd February. A special word of mention to our own club representatives namely Eamonn Crotty, Sean Daly, Laurence Power, Brian Looby and Conor Prunty. Hopefully playing at such a high standard of hurling will push these lads on to greater things for the club in 2013.

Under 13 and 14
Under 13 & 14 training continues Tuesday nights at 7pm. All players are requested to bring gum shields to training with them.

U16 and Minor
Football and hurling training for under 16 and minors continue every Tuesday and Friday nights and Sunday mornings. Football will take place on the Tuesday and Friday nights and Hurling on a Sunday mornings for the moment. Again for the football sessions it is essential that every player has a gum shield.

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.
