No. Drawn - 18

Jack The Joker – Jackpot Won
Our popular Jack the Joker Fundraiser will continue this Sunday night in Kennedy’s Live where the Jackpot will be €2,000 as on Sunday night Kay O’Connor was drawn out of the drum and picked card number 18 which when turned was indeed the Joker meaning she won €2,260, while Niamh McMahon and Christy Dunford won €25 each.

Senior Hurling
This Friday evening we play Lismore in the Semi Final of the Sargent Cup in Fraher Field at 8:00pm.

On behalf of all in the club we would like to congratulate Shauna McGrath and Lauren Dunford who were members of the Waterford Under 14 Football team that won the All Ireland Final recently. Both girls come from families steeped in GAA tradition and we congratulate all involved in this fantastic achievement.

Inter County Activity
Last Saturday the Waterford Senior Footballers gave a fantastic display against Galway in the All Ireland Qualifiers only to suffer a heartbreaking defeat, where Stephen Enright, Shane Briggs and Gary Hurney were all on the team. This Thursday night Waterford Junior Footballers play Cork in the Munster Final in Fraher Field and we wish our own James O’Mahony the very best of luck ahead of the game. We also wish Richie Foley and all the Waterford Senior Hurlers the very best of luck ahead of Saturday’s qualifier against Kilkenny.

Mary and Mollie Tournament
On Saturday July 20th the first Mary and Mollie Enright Ladies Under 16 Football Tournament will take place in our club grounds. During her life Mary gave an enormous amount to Ladies Football in our club and at county level and this tournament is being held to commemorate the memory of Mary and her daughter Mollie. Four teams, Abbeyside, Dungarvan, Inch and Moyle Rovers will compete on the day with the winners of the final being presented with the Mary and Mollie Cup and the winners of the 3rd/4th play off will receive the Mary and Mollie Shield. The tournament will commence at 2pm with the presentations due to take place at 5pm. All are welcome to attend with refreshments being served throughout the day. Also please note that special commemorative t-shirts will be on sale on the day at a cost of €10, with all proceeds going to Temple Street Children’s Hospital.

Club Bingo
Our Bingo continues this Sunday night in the CBS Hall where the jackpot is €1050.

Club Committee Meeting
There will be a meeting of the club committee on Thursday night, July 18th at 8pm in the Clubhouse.

On behalf of all in the Club we would like to send our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of the late Davy Murray who passed away recently. Davy was a regular on Ballinacourty teams during his playing career and we once again send our sympathies to all his family but especially to his wife Breda.
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.
