Juvenile Notes - 17th April

Outdoor Training
Outdoor training was due to begin on Saturday morning last for the under 6 team up as far as under 10. However due to bad weather this training had to be cancelled. It however will now start this Saturday morning between 10:30 and 11:30am.

Under 16
Our under 16 hurlers were due to play their second game in the county championship on Monday last away to Passage. At the time of going to print this result was not available and it will be included in next week’s notes.
This group also are out in the third round of the championship at home to Tallow on Thursday at 7 pm.

Under 14
Congratulations to everyone involved in our under 14 Feile Peil team who won the county championship last Wednesday night in the Fraher Field where they defeated Gaultier. This was a tremendous performance by all involved and this team has now qualified for the National Feile Peil tournament in Derry in June.
On Saturday this team again took to the field and played St Pats in the Western final. Being a little tired after their exploits on the Wednesday before we lost this game by a point to a very determined St. Pat’s outfit. We wish them all the best in the county final. To our players congratulations must go also after an outstanding year in football and we would also like to thank their mentors for all the hours there after putting into this team. Training for the hurling championship now starts and we wish this group well for the rest of the year.

Our U8 panel travelled to Carriganore on Saturday last to take part in a football blitz. On a very wet and windy day the boys were divided into two teams of ten and played two games each with the third for each group cancelled as the day just got worse. Fair play to the boys who togged out, although wet and cold they enjoyed it. Better days ahead lads. Training continues every Saturday 10.30 to 12pm unless you hear different.

Congratulations to all involved with the Friary College Superschools team who won this event in Wales last week. Involved from the under 16 panel in Wales were Rory Conway, Darragh McGrath and David Looby.
Also we would like to congratulate Dungarvan CBS on winning the All Ireland Senior Hurling B title last weekend.

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.
