We received a walkover from An Ghaeltacht last Thursday evening, next game in this division is at home to Lismore on 14th July.
Well done to Michael Kiely on a fine display to be runner up in the Larry Quinn County hurling skills last Thursday in Dunhill.

Outdoor Hurling
Our underage outdoor hurling continues this Saturday morning the 5th July 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.

Our under 16 hurlers played Lismore in our club grounds on Thursday night last week and after a very entertaining game came away with a one point loss.

Our minor hurlers played the first round of their championship last Wednesday night and came away with a seven point victory over Brickey Rangers. This was a fine display from one to fifteen and we thoroughly deserved victory in the end.

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.
