Club Notes - 3rd December

Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 50
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Alice O’Connor’s Bar where the jackpot is €2600. On Sunday night last Margaret Dwane was drawn out and chose card number 50 which wasn’t the Joker although she did win €50. Eoghan Cosgrave and Packie Lynch 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 this Friday 5th December in Scoil Mhuire, Abbeyside at 8pm.

National Draw
Tickets for the GAA National Draw are currently on sale from any member of our club committee and the adult players. There are some fantastic prizes on offer in the draw with tickets costing €10 each. For anyone who purchases their tickets before Christmas we will be holding an internal raffle where the usual selection of Christmas Hamper and other prizes will be on offer. Therefore we urge all our club supporters to please support this draw as not only will you be helping us raise funds required to run the club but you will also be entered into not one but two draws for wonderful prizes.

Club Bingo
Our Club Bingo will continue this Sunday night in the CBS Hall where the jackpot is €400.

Munster Club
We would like to wish Modeligo the very best of luck ahead of their Munster Final this weekend against Castlemartyr.

On behalf of all in the club we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of the late Noel McGovern who passed away last week. Noel was a member of many Abbeyside hurling teams which recorded notable wins during his playing career and the McGovern family continue to play an active role in our club up to this day.

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.
