Juvenile Notes - 27th August

Under 14 Hurling
Our under 14 hurling team played their last league game in the county championship on Monday night last week away to Ballygunner. Despite starting slowly our lads finished well and won on a score line of 5-9 to 1-10 in the end. Our next match here is the quarter final stage and this will take place on the 13th September.

Under 13
Our next under 13 outing is the county final against the eastern champions on September 6th in Fraher Field.

Minor Hurling
We played our fourth round of the minor hurling championship last Wednesday against Sacred Heart at the Burgery. This match also doubled up as the Kieran Lennon Tournament and it was great to see a good turnout on the night to support the team and to show their appreciation to the Lennon family. We played well here and in the end came away with victory. After the game the Kieran Lennon Cup was presented to our captain Jack Duggan by Theresa Lennon and many of those present availed of the refreshments provided by the hard working group of ladies headed up by Niamh Enright.

Under 16 Hurling
We were due to play our local rivals the Brickey Rangers in the latest round of the under 16 hurling championship on Monday night last. At the time of going to print the result of this match was unavailable but will be included in next week’s notes.

Outdoor Hurling
Our underage outdoor hurling continues this Saturday morning the 30th August 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.
