Juvenile Notes - 22nd May

Cúl Camps
The Kellogg's Cúl Camp takes place from July 1st to 5th this year for boys and girls from age 6 and up. Registration can be done on line at Kellogg's Cúl Camps or by contacting your club coordinator Carmel on (087) 2598923.

Outdoor Hurling
Outdoor hurling continues every Saturday morning from 10.30 for boys age five and up. Helmets and Hurleys can be purchased through the club at a discounted price.

Minor Football
Our minor football team travelled to Bushy Park on Saturday morning last to take on local neighbours Dungarvan in the semi final of the county minor football championship. This was a keenly fought affair between two very evenly matched sides. After normal time the teams were level but in extra time Dungarvan scored two goals and went on to win by 3 points in the finish. Great credit must go to our team and the team management for their outstanding effort this year. We have struggled at this level over the last couple of years and it is great that we competed so strongly this year. The hurling is next for this group of players after the Leaving Cert and we hope that they show as much commitment to the hurling as they did for the football.

Congratulations are extended to all those children around the parish who made their First Holy Communion last weekend or those who will make it this weekend coming.

The under 10 team travelled to Carriganore on Saturday morning last to take place in blitz games. The team had a great day out and everyone seemed to go home happy.

The under 14 hurling team played Dungarvan in the Western Championship last week. After playing a nice brand of hurling they came away with a deserved win.
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.
