Well Done
Well done to the two local schools Scoil Garbháin and Garranbane NS on reaching the finals of the boys and girls national schools Western finals respectively that were played at Dungarvan GAA Club over the weekend. While neither were successful in their quest for victory both played very well on the day and were unlucky in defeat. As always the club would like to thank all the teachers in the parish who give of their time to promote our games in their schools.

Under 16
Our Under 16 footballers wrapped up the year of competitive action for the juvenile club at the Fraher Field on Saturday morning last when they played the Western Final of the Under 16 Football competition. After losing the county final of this competition earlier in the year narrowly these lads were determined to take at least one title from their year’s efforts. They took on the Nire on a very windy day. After being against the wind in the first half they played some outstanding football against the elements and led by two goals at half time. In the second half with the wind the lads pulled away to win well in the end against a gallant Nire outfit. Team captain Patrick Power raised the cup on behalf of a team that really deserved some silverware at the end of a long hard year. Well done to all the players and management involved.

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.
