Juvenile Notes - 26th June

Under 8
What a busy 4 weeks for our U8 panel. They've completed the West County Play and Stay go games blitzes in which they played 2 weeks of hurling and 2 weeks of football with Modeligo the venue for the four Monday nights. Also the U8 football tournament on Wednesday saw the boys heading to Ballinameela, Clashmore and a trip to Affane still to come on the final night. Throw into the mix a hurling tournament in Ballyduff Lower against De La Salle, Mount Sion and Ballyduff and Saturday last June 22nd we were invited to the Bishopstown (Cork) hurling tournament where we took on teams from Cork and Tipperary. In all games the lads have acquitted themselves brilliantly and as each game is played the improvement is noticeable and the experience invaluable. A big thanks to all parents for bringing the lads along every night, to all clubs who hosted and invited us but I'd like to send a special thanks to Bishopstown for inviting us, the friendly welcome, and 'party' for the boys afterwards. It's always nice to visit other counties and represent our club and county.

The president of the GAA Liam O’Neill will visit our club this Wednesday night to present gear and bags to this group of players and he will also see some of our stars of the future in action as some groups of players will be getting coached on the night in conjunction with his visit.

Primary Game
We would like to congratulate our own Daithi Brunnock on being selected to represent Cork in the Primary Game exhibition game on Sunday last at half time in the Cork/Clare Munster Semi Final. This is a fantastic honour for Daithi, and it is certainly a rare occurrence for Cork to select a Waterford player on a Cork team which shows that Daithi must certainly have stood out at the selection trial.

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.
