Juvenile Notes - 4th December

Indoor Hurling
Our indoor hurling sessions have begun again in the Friary College every Friday night. Our under 5 and 6 team has their session between 6 and 6:45 and our under 7 teams session runs from 6:45 till half past 7. New members are always welcome. Meanwhile out under 8, 9 and ten groups have opted for outdoor hurling at the ball wall every Friday night. Again all are welcome. Times for the ball wall sessions will be given by text to those involved.

Under 16
Pride of place this week goes to our under 16 football team who won the county championship on Saturday morning last. Played at the Fraher Field against Gaultir this was really a game that had everything. We played some excellent football on the day and in a match which could have gone either way at the finish a last minute Eoin Kiely goal gave us victory and it was wonderful to see this group of players celebrating their first county championship as a group. After the game we were treated to a meal at the Gold Coast and we would like to thank the Gold Coast for organising the meal in such a short period of time. Everyone in the club would like to congratulate all the players and mentors involved and hopefully this is the first of many county titles for this group of players. It was a fantastic way to finish off the year for the club.

Australian Visit
Next Monday night should be an interesting night at the Burgery for our under 15 and under 16 football teams. On the night we take on an Australian selection of players who visit our parish as part of a nationwide tour. This should be a fantastic night for all players involved to get to play against sportspeople of a different code. The under 15 games throws in at 6 followed by an under 16 match at 7. Everyone is more than welcome to attend which should be a great night for everyone involved in the club.

Team Managers
Anyone who is interested in managing any of our juvenile teams in 2014 is asked to submit their name to Niamh Enright by December 14th.
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.
