Club Notes - 13th February

Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 16
Our popular Jack the Joker Fundraiser will continue this Sunday night in Kennedy’s Live where the Jackpot will be €8,050 as on Sunday night Lee O’Donnell was drawn out of the drum but did not find the Joker, however he did win €50, while Sean Kiely and Eoghan Cosgrave 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.

Under 21 Football
This Sunday we take on Dungarvan in the first round of the Western Championship in Colligan at 2:30 pm where all support would be greatly appreciated.

Club Bingo
Our Bingo continues this Sunday night when we will return to our normal venue of the CBS Hall where the jackpot is €1,000.

Inter County Activity
On Saturday night last Waterford Senior Footballers continued their good start to the National League with a victory over Tipperary in Fraher Field. Representing our club on the team were Stephen Enright, Shane Briggs, John and Patrick Hurney and Sean O’Hare.

County Board Quiz
On Thursday February 21st the County Board are holding a table quiz throughout the County with the questions being aired on WLR FM by our own Bob O’Brien and Kieran O’Connor. There was a fantastic turnout of club personnel last month for the footballers quiz so it would be great to see a big turnout in Minnies Bar at 8:30pm on the night to support our County. Teams of three or four cost €10 a person.

Club Pitch
All managers are asked to note that the main club pitch remains closed and managers are asked to ensure that they have booked the training pitch before arranging training. We would ask that managers arranging Challenge games would book the field at least five days in advance with Michael O’Donovan.

Membership fees are now due and can be paid to Jonathan O’Donovan or Kevin Tobin or indeed any member of the club committee. We would ask that all players make an effort to pay their membership as soon as possible as training has now resumed with a number of Championships beginning in the next number of weeks.

Deise Development Draw
Over the next number of weeks members of our club will once again be calling to the people of our parish seeking your support for the Deise Development Draw which will begin at the end of March. The format of the draw is similar to previous years with nine monthly draws costing €10 a month. Each month there will be a prize fund of €15,600 so as well as supporting our club you will be in with a chance of winning some fantastic prizes.
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.
