Juvenile Notes - 24th July

Long Puck
Everyone in the club would like to congratulate popular under 16 player for the club Eoin Kiely on finishing third in the Munster long puck last week. This was an under 16 Munster long puck competition and took place in the Glen of Aherlow. Again well done Eoin.

Under 9
Our under 9 squad travelled to Lismore on Saturday last to take part in a memorial competition. This was a great day out for all involved including players and mentors. Fortunately the lads played very well on the day and came away with victory in this competition.

Under 16
Our under16 football team played two games in the Western Under 16 Football Championship in the last week. First of all we played local rivals Dungarvan in Abbeyside. We played some very good football here and came away with a deserved victory. Then on Saturday we played the western final against Cois Brid and yet again played very well to come away with victory and the Western Championship. A very well done to everyone involved.

Our minor hurling team is due to play the next round of their County Championship this week. Players will be informed of times dates etc once the fixtures are known after the county minor hurling team’s replay of the Munster Final last night.

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.

Under 14
Our under 14 team’s long awaited County Final appearance is due to take place this Saturday the 27th against De Le Salle. We wish this group and their mentors the best of luck on the day and hopefully they can bring back the cup to the village for only the second time. Please ask locally for the time and venue of this fixture.
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.
