Juvenile Notes - 12th June

Juvenile Cake Sale
We would like to express our thanks to Sharon Kiely and Michelle Treen for their work organising a cake sale last Sunday morning in both Ballinroad and Abbeyside masses. We would also like to thank the parents that both helped at the masses and baked the lovely array of food, well done.

Under 12
We played the final game of the Under 12 Town and Country Hurling League last Friday evening. Great to see all of our players back. This was a great game with our boys playing some of the best hurling they have played this year, and came out on top. There are a number of games planned in the coming weeks for this age group. It is important that you come to as many training sessions as possible.

Under 14
Our Division 1 team played their final game of the league part of the county championship. This was against De Le Salle. This game was always going to be a very close game based on our last encounter in the Féile final where we won by a point. This time around there was again one score between us where the city team got a goal in the last few minutes to win by that margin. We have now qualified for the semi finals of this championship where hopefully the finishing position will be decided this week.
Our second team played An Gaeltacht in Old Parish last week. Our lads played well but could not match the very strong opposition. The final score 6 – 8 to 2 – 6. There are still 3 games left to the league part of this championship.

Under 10
A big word of congratulations must go out to our under 10 hurling team who last Saturday week won the prestigious Ballyduff tournament. A great day out was had by everyone involved and a special word of thanks must go to the mentors involved. Hopefully in years to come these young lads will be the future of our club.

Féile Bus
A limited number of seats are available on the bus to Derry for the Féile football competition. If you wish to go on this bus please contact Carmel Power on (087) 2598923 as soon as possible because spaces are limited.

Minor Football
Our minor football team had a good win over Stradbally in the western semi final last week. We now qualify for the western final which will be played after the exams. Minor hurling will also commence after the exams.

Best of Luck
On behalf of the club we would like to send best wishes to all those in the club who are presently sitting exams.

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 aged five and up. Helmets and hurleys can be purchased through the club at a discounted price.
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.
