Juvenile Notes - 11th June

Under 8
Our under 8 hurling team travelled to Carriganore on Saturday morning last to take part in a ground hurling blitz. After some great performances from the team we came away winning two matches and losing one by the narrowest of margins. Great improvement has been seen in this group in recent weeks and we thank all the lads and parents for travelling on Saturday. As we always say without the support of the parents these enjoyable days out would not be possible.

Under 14
Pride and place this week yet again goes to our under 14 hurling team after they claimed another western championship after a great victory against a gallant Lismore outfit on Saturday morning last at the Fraher Field. This game was right in the melting pot up until the final whistle. Indeed Lismore lead by 4 points with 14 minutes remaining and playing with a strong breeze. However our boys dug deep in the last quarter to come away with a four point win. Well done to all.

Outdoor Hurling
Our underage outdoor hurling continues this Saturday morning the 14th June at the Burgery at 10. 30 am. All are welcome. This covers all age ranges from under 5 to under 10. Anyone who has not paid their membership yet is asked to pay it on the morning for insurance reasons. Membership forms will also be given out on the morning. Helmets are compulsory and if required can be purchased at a reduced price of €50. There will be a €2 cost also to cover expenses.

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.
