Juvenile Notes - 29th May

Under 14
Having played no game in the Division 1 hurling championship up until last week despite it being on round 4 we finally got our campaign of to a start and travelled to Waterford to play Ballygunner last Monday. We played some good hurling and came away with a win. We travelled to Lismore Wednesday night and also had a good result there. Four points from the two games played so far. Next games here are home to St Pats, away to Mt. Sion and home to De La Salle.
Our second team played St. Saviours at home and this was a really entertaining contest and was very close throughout. Our boys finished the stronger and got two late goals to win the game. Next up here is An Ghaelteacht followed by Fourmilewater .
Panel: Aaron Beresford, Tommy Walsh, Shane Ahearne, Cian Fagan, Padraig Moore, Bearach Moore, Gearoid Hallinan, Sean Crotty, Sean Whelan-Barrett, Shane Kiely, Ben Flynn, James Riordan, Jack Kiely, David Montgomery, Dean Beresford , Jamie Walsh, Mark Twomey, Meldan Dwyer, Daithi Brunnock, Johnny Treen, Michael Kiely, Sean Kent, John Power, Jack Dwane, Paddy Dwane, Cian Power, Eoin Ahearne, Danny Reynolds, Jake O’Riordan, Cian O Riordan, Jake O Riordan, Ruairi Cusack and Fergal Roche.

U11 and 12
We travelled to Dundrum last Saturday to compete in an under 11 and 12 blitz. We played Ferbane in the first game and both our teams played well and won both games. Next up was the host club Kickhams where team A drew the game and team B won their game. We were then in the final of both cups. Our players were starting to tire and unfortunately we did not win any of the finals against Midelton and Na Piarsaigh but hurling was the winner on the day with some great displays from several of our players. It was a long day starting at 10.30 am and ending at7pm. Thanks to the parents who drove and all the players for their efforts.
We will have played our next under 12 fixture on Tuesday night against our neighbours Dungarvan by the time the notes are printed and our under 11 are also playing them next Friday evening in the Town & Country League. Training continues every Wednesday at 6 pm.

Primary Game
We would like to wish Sean Kent and Jamie Walsh the very best of luck ahead of their Primary Games appearance this weekend. On Saturday Sean travels to the Kingdom to play for the football side whilst on Sunday Jamie will play on the Hurling team in Thurles.

Schools Finals

On Tuesday last the Western Finals of the Primary Schools Hurling and Camoige Competitions took place in Bushy Park. Scoil Mhuire took on Lismore in the hurling final and at the end of a great game the sides were level so a replay will go ahead next week. In the Camoige final the Garranbane girls played with great spirit but were beaten by a strong Lismore side. We congratulate both schools on reaching the finals and thank the teachers for all the hard work they put into training the boys and girls.
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.
