National Bike Week
As part of Bike Week on Saturday 21st June the club will be running an event with the help of Go Dungarvan Smarter Travel. We are asking all club members, parents and children to join us at 9.30 in the Eurospar car park and cycle to the club grounds. Each child that takes part will receive a goodie bag and Butlers ice cream.  Hope to see you all take part.

Intercounty Activity
On behalf of all in the club we would like to congratulate the Waterford Senior Footballers on their performance against Clare in Ennis last Saturday where they fought back to secure a very good draw. Stephen Enright and Shane Briggs were on the team and we wish them the best of luck ahead of this Saturday night’s replay. Also in Ennis Michael O’Halloran, Mark Ferncombe, James O’Mahoney and Conor Maloney were on the Junior team whilst Eddie O’Halloran was a selector. Finally Richie Foley came on for the Senior hurlers in Thurles on 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.

On behalf of all in the club we would like to extend our sympathies to the family and friends of the late Ann Casey, Clonea who passed away last week. The Casey family have been great supporters of our club for many years and Ann’s son Eddie won many underage County Titles with the club in the last decade whilst he is now involved in coaching our underage teams. Once again we send our sympathies to Ann’s husband Dan, daughters Gillian, Kathryn and Anna, son Eddie and indeed to all Ann’s relatives and friends.

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.
