We got the U9 Western Hurling and Football League (group 2) off to a start on Monday April 7th with Dungarvan the visitors to Abbeyside. After an entertaining 40 minutess of hurling it finished a draw 4 - 1 to 3 - 4. Jake, Ethan and Jack scored goals for us on the night with Conor chipping in with a lovely point. All the boys played great hurling for the first night out. Panel: Jack, Sean Q, Brian, Tadgh, Conor, Ethan, Jamie, Kyle, Aodhan, Jake F, D and Sean W.
On Tuesday the 8th the rest of the panel went to Modeligo to play Naomh Brid (group 1).On the evening our boys were too strong for the opposition, with all the lads playing their part. Panel: Sean W, Darragh W, Jake O D, Kieran, Darragh C, Billy, Fionn, Cathal, Cormac, Daniel and Jack. We should have a round of football played against the same two opponents (Monday 14th) Update next week.

Indoor Hurling
Just to remind all parents that the indoor hurling in the Friary has now come to an end. Our outdoor season starts on Saturday the 3rd of May at the Burgery at 10:30.

Under 8
Our under 8 football team played Rathgormack on Sunday last at the Fraher Field at half time during the senior football match between the same two sides. This was a very exciting day out for all involved and again we would like to thank all the Parents for their co-operation. We performed well and came away with a draw. Well done to all.

Under 11
Our under 11 hurling team played against Cois Brid on Friday night last in Abbeyside. We performed very well here with a young team and there were many outstanding individual performances. Defeat was our lot but the performance of the team was very encouraging indeed.

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.
