Juvenile Notes - 10th April

Under 11 - 12
Our Under 11 hurlers played there first league game last Friday night against Ring. It is early in the season so we were a bit rusty but played better hurling as the game advanced. We have games every second Friday in the Town & Country League for the next number of weeks.
Our under 12 hurlers also played against Ring last Monday night and again we needed the game, we are also out this Friday in the league.

Outdoor Training
Training outdoors returns next Saturday morning at 10:30 to 12:00 at the club grounds for under fives right through to under tens.

Colleges Hurling
History was made in Semple Stadium Thurles on Saturday when Dungarvan Colleges claimed a very first All Ireland A Hurling title when they overcame CBS Kilkenny. Our club men on the day were in the goal Laurence Power and full back Brian Looby and on the panel were Eamon Crotty Conor Prunty and Sean Daly.
Best of luck to the CBS Dungarvan as they play on Sunday next in the All Ireland Colleges B Final.

Again we ask all players who have not paid there membership yet to do so as soon as possible. This is vital as no player will be insured until this is paid.

Under 16
We played our first game in the under 16 hurling championship last Monday week. We travelled to Ballyduff Lower for this game and came up against very strong home side. We battled very hard throughout but unfortunately were defeated on a scoreline of 3-12 to 2-8.

Under 14
Congratulations to all involved with the under14 football squad on winning the Feile Western title on Wednesday night last. This was a good game of football and our opponents St. Pats played excellently throughout and were unlucky not to go in ahead at the break. Ballinacourty however upped their performance in the second half and came away with victory on a score line of ten points to three. They now go on to play Gaultier in the County Feile Football Final and we wish them all the best of luck.
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.
