Juvenile Notes - 8th October

Under 12
Our under 12s had a busy week where we were in action on Monday against Kilrossanty in the football league. We played some very good football here and won the game. On Wednesday we travelled to Tramore and played our last game in the autumn hurling league. Well done to everyone here for making the journey and effort over the last 3 weeks. On Friday evening we played Dungarvan at home in the football league and what an exciting game it was where it was nip and tuck the whole way through the game and eventually ended a draw.
Training continues every Wednesday evening and every player needs to make every effort to attend, we have two games left to play in the town and county football league.

Minor Hurling
Well done to our minor hurling team lead by Jack Duggan who won the County Minor Hurling B title in Fraher Field Dungarvan on Friday night last against a very gallant Glenshelane outfit. We dominated this game throughout up until the last five minutes where our opponents scored three goals to cut the margin to a goal. In what was a very nervy finished indeed we held out to claim the championship. Praise must go to every single player on the panel who gave great commitment all year and to Pa, Donnacha, Mickey and Tiernan for their input throughout the year. Everyone in the club would also like to send out a good luck message to Ronan Mansfield who broke his leg just before the semi final and he turned out to be a big loss indeed. Get well soon Ronan. Last but not least we must thank all those at the Park Hotel for the lovely meal they provided after the game. Well done to all.

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.
