Juvenile Notes - 13th February

Harty Cup Fundraiser
A five a side soccer tournament will be held in the Friary hall on Sunday the 17th of February in aid of the Harty Cup training fund. €10 per person charge will apply. Contact Darragh Duggan on 0862662403 if you would like to enter a team by Thursday. All support will be greatly appreciated.

Minor Football
Minor footballers travelled to the Mill field in Ballymacabery on Sunday morning last the 9th to play the Nire in their opening round of the county championship. Great football was played by all and thankfully we got our campaign off to a winning start.

Indoor Hurling
Indoor hurling continues every Friday night beginning at six o clock for five and six year olds. Please note a one way system is in operation in the Friary grounds. The joker fundraiser will be on sale every Friday during indoor hurling. We appeal to parents to support this as it goes to development of club grounds. This development will ensure safe and top class training facilities for our children into the future.

Membership is now been taken up. Players are reminded that as the championships are starting soon. This needs to be paid as soon as possible.

Our under 14 championship gets off to a start this weekend. Our first game is against the Brickey Rangers at 10:30 on Sunday morning. Support would be appreciated here.

Well done to our Under 8 panel who over the last two weekends took part in the Waterford Coaching and games which were held in Ballinameela and Kilgobnet. Our panel was divided into two groups, one going to Ballinameela and the other to Kilgobnet for the indoor hurling in week one, and then the same venues for the football the following week. A special thanks to the parents for travelling with the boys to get them there and for making sure they all had the mouth guards which is mandatory for football. Training this Friday night, 15th March, in the Friary hall at 6.45, watch out for the teamer and please reply.

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.
