Club Bingo

Intermediate Hurling
This Sunday afternoon we take on Cappoquin in the Western Championship in Fraher Field.

Fundraising Cycle
Preparations for our fundraising cycle from Limerick to Abbeyside in August are now at a very advanced stage. A specially designed cycling jersey has been designed for the cycle and can be purchased by anybody who wishes to do so. Priced at €40 they can be ordered from Michael Cosgrave or Benny Flynn and they could very well become a collectors’ item in years to come as the cycle is on track to be a fantastic success so get your order in quickly to avoid disappointment.

Intercounty Activity
On behalf of all in the club we would like to congratulate Richie Foley and all the Waterford Senior Hurlers on their fantastic performance in Thurles on Sunday last and wish them the very best of luck ahead of the replay next Sunday

Booking of Pitches
All team managers are reminded to please ensure that they have booked the pitch for training or matches with Michael O’Donovan. We would also ask team managers to please try and do as much heavy training in the areas behind the goals.

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.
