Club Notes - 5th November

Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 10
There was great excitement in Minnies Bar on Sunday night last as our Joker Jackpot of €8,800 was won by Declan Hayes who chose card number 10 when pulled out of the drum. The Tobin family and Niamh Briggs won €25 each. This week the draw will move to Alice O’Connor’s Bar where the jackpot is €2000. 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.

Best of Luck
On behalf of all in the club we would like to wish James O’Mahony the very best of luck as he heads off to Malaysia for the next twelve months. James has been a member of both our Senior teams for the last number of years. Indeed he made his Senior debut for the club in our 2007 Munster Club Semi Final victory in Killarney as a 17 year old and since then he has given great service to the club. Whilst he will be an undoubted loss to us in 2015 we wish James the very best of luck and hope to see him back in the club colours again in 2016.

Monster Bingo
Our Monster Bingo will take place in The Park Hotel on this Sunday at 3pm with €3,000 in prize money. As always your support would be greatly appreciated here.

On behalf of all in the club we would like to congratulate Timmy Organ and Breda Veale on their recent engagement which was revealed to us all at Timmy’s recent surprise party last weekend.  All in the club wish them every happiness together in the years ahead.

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

Munster Club
We would like to send our congratulations to all in The Nire on their great win over Ballylanders last Sunday and wish them the very best of luck ahead of their Munster semifinal against Cratloe in two weeks. We would also like to congratulate our near neighbours Brickey Rangers on their return to Senior Football and wish them the best of luck ahead of their game against Ardfert in the Munster Club Championship.

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.
