Juvenile Notes - 25th September

Last Thursday night saw us play our second game in the U16 county championship against Cois Brid in Abbeyside. The lads secured their second win here. On the night Cois Brid player John Paul Lucey sustained a broken jaw in an accidental challenge and all in the club wish to send their best wishes to John Paul and hope to see him back playing with his club in the near future.

Our minor hurling team completed their hurling season on Sunday morning last at De le Salle. From the beginning this was a tough campaign and while defeat was our lot again on Sunday the lads showed great battling qualities throughout as they did the whole way through the championship. Well done to everyone involved and a big thanks must go out to the manager and selectors of this team.

Well Done
One of our under 13 players Michael Kiely fresh from playing in the Under 13 County Final on Saturday, had the honour of playing in the Mini 7’s Football in Croke Park on Sunday at half time in the All Ireland. This was brilliant experience for this young player.

Under 13
Our under 13 panel travelled to Walsh park on Saturday morning for the hurling county Final against the eastern champions Mt Sion.  They started very well and had a few quick points on the board in the first few minutes and led at half time 7pts to 1pt and playing very well with the breeze. In the second half they lifted the tempo even more and were hurling very well with a great team performance. They ran out comprehensive winners 2-11 to 0-4.

Panel: Eoin Ahearne, Eoin Flynn, Meldan O’Dwyer, Cian Fagan, Sean Kent, Shane Kiely, Seanan Travers, Dean Beresford, Daithi Brunnock, Jamie Walsh, Ben Flynn, Danny Reynolds, Cian O’Riordan, James Riordan, Michael Kiely, Barry Morrissey, Ethan Raher Daniel Raher, Oisin Hallahan, Michael Troy, David Shields, Sean Roche, David Hayes.

Wednesday we started the Under 13 football championship against St. Oliver’s and had a good start and won 3-7 to 3-4. Next game in the football is against An Ghaeltacht next Saturday.

Our U12 football team also played last Monday against Brickies where our boys played well and recorded a good win. Next up here is at home to St. Oliver’s on Wednesday 15th.

Danny Lenihan Day
Next Saturday morning should be buzzing with excitement at the Burgery as our annual Danny Lenihan Day is taking place. This is an inner club tournament played every year for under 7, 8, 9 and tens. On the day there will also be other cups competed for namely the Lanigan, Langan, O Shea, Flynn and Higgins as well as the Danny Lenihan Cup itself. This should be a great morning and everyone who would like is welcome to come along. There will be light refreshments provided.
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.
