Well done to our lads, they played fabulous hurling on the day and proved ground hurling is not a thing of the past, and done the club proud. Big thanks goes to Roanmore for the invite and running a brilliant blitz, as you can imagine organising 132 teams must have been some headache, but manage it they did. Finally all of us wish Aodhan Barret a speedy recover from illness, hope to see him back training soon.
Our under 8s also took part in this competition with a report coming next week.

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.
