Club Notes - 17th September

Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 35
Our popular Jack the Joker Fundraiser will continue this Sunday night in Minnies Bar  where the Jackpot will be €7,800 as on Sunday night David Power was drawn out of the drum and picked card 35 which wasn’t the Joker though he did win €50. Margaret Cliffe and Liam McLaughlin won €25 each. As well as our group of ticket sellers tickets can be purchased from Convenience Store Ballinroad, Village Flowers, Spar, Mike Kiely’s Butchers and Mousies Takeaway.

Junior Hurling
On Saturday evening last we played Kilgobnet in the Western Semi Final in Colligan and despite a brave effort by our side it was Kilgobnet who emerged victorious and advance to the Western Final where we wish them the best of luck. We would like to thank all of the players and management team for the commitment they have shown to the team throughout the year and all involved can be proud of their efforts.

Senior Hurling
Our involvement in the County Championship came to an end on Sunday last as we were defeated by Mt. Sion in the quarter final in Walsh Park. Unfortunately we did not produce our best form on the day, but again we must thank the players and management for all the effort and dedication they gave all year.

Diamond Jubilee
On Friday evening last a special mass was held in Abbeyside Church to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Fr. Richard Doherty. There was a large attendance at the mass showing the esteem in which Fr. Doherty is held by the people of our parish. After the mass Club Secretary Jonathan O’Donovan made a presentation to Fr. Doherty on behalf of the club.

Presentation to Fr. Doherty

Club Bingo
This Sunday our Club Bingo returns to the CBS Hall at 8:30 pm where the jackpot is €1,400.

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.
