Juvenile Notes - 25th June

Outdoor Hurling
Our underage outdoor hurling continues this Saturday morning the 28th June at the Burgery at 10.30am. 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.

Cúl Camps
The annual VHI Cúl Camp takes place at our club grounds this year beginning Monday June 30th. For more information or bookings please log on to their website This is usually a terrific camp for young kids and one which they most enjoy and look forward to.

Big congratulations this week goes out to James Riordan who finished second in the All Ireland under 14 Féile hurling skills competition on Saturday last in the Athletic grounds in Armagh. Being very unlucky not to win James represented his club and county with great pride and skill. This was a marvelous achievement for this up and coming hurler and everyone in the club was very proud of his efforts.

Flag Day
Our annual flag day this year for the juvenile committee takes place on July 5th and 6th. Anyone willing to help out on any way is asked to contact Kevin Tobin on (087) 9954448.

Under 14
Our under 14 hurlers travelled to Thurles on Saturday last to take part in the Feile blitz competition. While victory was ultimately not achieved on the day all the lads enjoyed their day out and represented the club with great passion.

National Bike Week
As part of national bike week the club organized a cycle from Eurospar to our club grounds on Saturday morning last with various pick up points along route. There was a big turnout and everyone who took part really enjoyed themselves.

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.
