Juvenile Notes - 14th May

Under 9
We continued the West hurling and football league last Monday evening (6th) with both groups playing at home on a wet and windy night in Abbeyside. Group one came up against a strong Fourmilewater outfit with our visitors taking the spoils while group two met Clashmore and recorded a fine victory. Group one will have concluded on Monday the 12th with football against the Nire, report next week and group two still to meet Clashmore (football) Cappoquin & Ballyduff (both codes) Finally, congratulations to our boys in Garranbane who made their First Holy Communion Saturday 10th and best wishes to the lads in Abbeyside who make it this Saturday 17th.

Outdoor Hurling
Please note that there will be no outdoor hurling this Saturday morning due to the Abbeyside Communion taking place.

Minor Football
Our minor footballers bowed out of the championship at the semi final stage on Sunday last in the Fraher Field against a very strong Nire team. We played well here but just came up short at the finish after a tremendous second half display. We would like to thank all mentors and players for all the efforts over the past couple of months. We were not too far away and this group has the potential to go on and improve as adult players. We would like to congratulate the Nire also and wish them well in the western final.

Under 14 Hurling Feile Final
The under 14 hurling Féile final took place on Wednesday against Mount Sion in the Fraher Field. At time of going to print the result of this match was unavailable but will be included in next week’s notes.

Under 16 Football
Our under 16 footballers take part in the county semi final at the Millfield against The Nire tomorrow evening (Thursday). Best wishes to all involved.

Bag Pack
Our annual bag pack is now fast approaching and we seek volunteers to fill timeslots on the given days. It takes part this year at Garveys Supervalu, Dungarvan from the 29th to the 31st of May. This is one of main sources of income for the juvenile committee so we urge anyone available to help out on those dates to contact juvenile secretary Niamh Enright on (087) 9705005. Any help would be appreciated no matter how big or small.

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.
