Juvenile Notes - 6th March

Last Sunday we played the third round of the under 14 football championship at home. This was against near neighbours Dungarvan. This was a very low scoring game with just 3 scores in total. Our boys battled well in the second half to hold onto a one point win. Final score was 1-0 to 0-2.
Next week we are away to Brickies and our second under14 team finally get their championship off to a belated start where we play Stradbally in Abbeyside. Training continues on Tuesday evenings at 7pm.

Training continues this Friday evening at 7 pm for our under 16 hurling panel. Championship time is creeping up slowly now so a full attendance is requested. Also any member of the panel who has filled in their membership forms, we would encourage to return as soon as possible.

Our minor footballers travel to Roanmore on Sunday morning next for their 2nd game in the county championship for this group of players. All support would be greatly appreciated.

Indoor Hurling
Again hurling indoor training continues this Friday night at the Friary college hall starting with the five and six year olds at 6 pm. Helmets will once again be on sale for anybody interested in purchasing one.

Fun Table Quiz
The juvenile club is running a fun family table quiz on the 24th of March in Minnies beginning at 3pm. This promises to be a fantastic event and certainly not one to be missed. This quiz is aimed at families where both adults and children can get involved and where fun is the most important aspect.

Good Luck and Congratulations
We would like to wish St Augustine’s College and Dungarvan CBS well in their respective All Ireland semi-finals this Saturday and especially all our own players involved.
We would also like to congratulate all the children of the parish who were confirmed on Friday and Saturday last.

Juvenile Visit from Bishopstown
The Burgery will be a hive of activity this Sunday morning the 10th as we are getting a visit from Bishopstown for a number of Juvenile matches. This promises to be a great morning’s hurling. Their visit is part of a trip they have planned to coincide with the Waterford vs Cork National Hurling League match in the Fraher Field.
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.
