Juvenile Notes - 6th November

Saturday Mornings
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. All newcomers are welcome.

Minor Hurling
Our minor hurling team finished their year’s activity on the bank holiday Monday last at Fraher Field. They played against the Brickeys in the Western Championship and despite playing well they conceded some soft goals and ended up defeated. This brings to an end a very busy year for our minors .A big thank you from the club goes out to all the team and management involved.

Under 16
Well done to all involved in our under 16 football team who have qualified for the county final. We played our semi final on Sunday morning last against Ardmore. After a very tough match we eventually wore down our opponents to win easily enough in the end. At the time of writing there is no date available for the county final but everyone involved with the club would like to wish this very dedicated group of young players the best of luck in that county final and hopefully like our seniors recently they can bring back another cup to Ballinacourty.

Under 13
Pride and place this week also goes out to our under 13 football team who won the Western Championship in Bushy Park on Sunday morning last against a very gallant St Olivers team. Trailing at half time our lads put in a super second half display to win this match. Special mention must go to St Olivers who made our lads work all the way for this one and they contested every ball like their lives depended on it. We showed great character in this match and this goes well for the county final which takes place either this weekend or the weekend after depending on primary schools fixtures. Best of luck to all involved. This team is going for a county double which would be a wonderful achievement for all involved.
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.
