Juvenile Notes - 26th March

Indoor Hurling
Our indoor hurling for the juvenile hurlers continues again on this Friday night coming the 28th March at the Friary College. The under 5, 6 and 7 groups will between the times of six to quarter to seven and the under 8 group will between the times of quarter to seven and half past seven. All are welcome. Helmets are compulsory and will be available over the next few weeks. To help cover costs a €2 fee will apply. Membership forms will also be given out to parents of players who have not received them yet and also collected off those who have.

Under 8 Football
Our under 8 football team took park in a football blitz in Cariganore on Saturday morning last. We played three games and competed well in all. All the young lads enjoyed themselves on the day and we would like to thank their trainers and parents for making it such an enjoyable day for all. Without the parents help and assistance these days out would not be possible.

Under 16 Football
Our under 16 football team travelled across the bridge last week to take on their near neighbours Dungarvan in the third round of the county football championship. On the night however things did not go to plan and we were beaten by a very good Dungarvan team. We now have still two games to play in this championship and wins in these two games are vital if we are to qualify.

Minor Football
Our minor football team was defeated on Sunday morning last in Tramore by the host club in the fourth round of the Minor football championship. Unfortunately we played very poorly on the day and were defeated. We still have a good chance of making the knockout stages of this competition and everyone in the club would also like to wish David Looby well who received a nasty injury in the game.

Membership is now nearly over due for juvenile members. The club would ask that anyone who has not paid the membership fee yet would to please do so as soon as possible because without this paid there is no insurance on that player should they get hurt.
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.
