Club Notes - 9th July

Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 33
Our popular Jack the Joker Fundraiser will continue this Sunday night in Kennedy’s Live where the Jackpot will be €6,000 as on Sunday night Claire Cosgrave (Ballycoe) was drawn out of the drum and picked card 33 which wasn’t the Joker though she did win €50. Sandra Cliffe and Kate Walsh won €25 each. As well as our group of ticket sellers tickets can be purchased from Convenience Store Ballinroad, The Village Inn, Village Flowers, Kennedys Live, Spar, Mike Kiely’s Butchers and Mousies Takeaway.

Intermediate Football
This Tuesday night we play Dungarvan in Fraher Field at 7:30 in the Western Championship.

Senior Hurling
This Friday night we play De la Salle in the County League in Abbeyside at 7:30.

Junior Hurling
On Saturday evening last a very strong second half display by our Junior hurlers helped them to a very good victory over Brickey Rangers in Fraher Field to maintain their 100% record in the Western Championship. Victory did come at a cost and we would like to wish Seanu Kiely a speedy recovery from the shoulder injury he sustained early in the game.

This Sunday night in Kennedys we will be making a presentation to Tom Whelan and Eddie Cashin to mark their retirement from the FAS scheme in the club grounds where both men gave great dedication to help our club grounds look as good as they presently do. We would like to see as many club members as possible in Kennedys at 9:30 to mark the occasion.

Inter County Activity
We would like to wish the Waterford minor hurlers the very best of luck ahead of their Munster Final against Limerick on Sunday where Conor Prunty is on the team and Stephen Cliffe and Sean Daly are on the panel whilst Donnacha Enright is a selector and Pat Moore is a member of the backroom.

Club Bingo
This Sunday our Club Bingo returns to the CBS Hall at 8:30 pm where the jackpot is €900.

First Aid
If there are any members interested in giving a hand with first aid to any of our adult teams at matches we would ask that you inform any club officer of your interest as we are hoping to arrange a First Aid course for any members who are interested.

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.
