James, Jack and Joey and Margaret O’Brien 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, Mousies Takeaway, Minnies Bar and Crottys Corner Bar.

Our Annual General Meeting will take place on Friday 5th December in Scoil Mhuire, Abbeyside at 8pm.

Club Bingo
Our Club Bingo will continue this Sunday night in the CBS Hall where the jackpot is €1,850.

International Rules
On Saturday last Australia defeated Ireland in the once off Test in Perth, but prior to the match an exhibition Gaelic Football match took place comprising players form Western Australian GAA Clubs.  Taking part in the exhibition match was Eoin Brackett who is living in Perth for a few years now and indeed earlier in the year Eoin and Daryl Ryan were members of the Shamrocks team that won the Western Australia Hurling title, showing that both have lost none of the skills which saw them win numerous County Titles with us before departing for Australia. We believe that the Abbeyside contingent in Perth grew even more over the weekend with the arrival of a few tourists who no doubt enjoyed the Perth nightlife with great gusto!!

Munster Club
We would like to congratulate Cappoquin on their fantastic victory last Saturday in the Munster Intermediate Hurling Final and to wish both The Nire and Modeligo the very best of luck ahead of their Munster Final matches this weekend.

On behalf of all in the club we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of the late Johnny Enright who passed away recently. For generations now the Enright family have given great service and commitment to our club and this continues on the playing fields to this day. Once again we send our sympathies to all the Enright family on their sad loss.

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.
