Juvenile Notes - 27th March

Family Fun Quiz
Last Sunday evening we held our annual quiz in Minnies. A great evening was had by all. A special word of thanks must go to Brendan & Marie O’Brien and Michael Veale who run the quiz each year and without their help it would not be possible. To Pat O’Brien and staff for allowing us the use of their premises. To all who gave us spot prizes we say a big thank you.

Kelloggs GAA Cul Camps
The annual Kelloggs GAA Cul camps will again take place in Abbeyside from the 1st of July to the 5th. Online booking goes live on April 1st where a €5 discount applies with tokens from Kelloggs cereal boxes. More information can be got by going to or contacting your club coordinator Carmel on 0872598923.

Best of luck to the Friary College as they bid for All Ireland success on Saturday on the football field. The side is captained by Brian Looby the club is also represented by Michael Maher, Conor Prunty, Kevin Dwane, Eoin Kiely, Kevin Dee and Eamon Crotty.
Membership is now overdue and we would ask that all forms and monies are returned as soon as possible.

Our under 16 hurling squad have their first outing in the county championship on this Monday coming the 1st April away to Ballyduff Lower. Support would be greatly appreciated.

Our second team for the under 14s began their campaign last weekend. After a brave performance defeat was their lot against Ballyduff. With such a young team it was fantastic to see the commitment and courage of this group of players.
Our first team’s match against Dungarvan was cancelled last Sunday morning but they have topped the group which automatically qualified them for the western final.

Indoor Training
NOTE TO PARENTS: There will be no indoor hurling training this Friday in the Friary hall due to it being Good Friday.
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.
