Club Notes - 28th January

Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 2
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Alice O’Connor’s Bar where the jackpot is €4,000. On Sunday night last Alan Walsh was drawn out and chose card number 2 which wasn’t the Joker although she did win €50. Mattie Kiely and Eleanor McCarthy won €25 each.  As well as our group of ticket sellers tickets can be purchased from Convenience Store Ballinroad, Village Flowers, Spar, Mousies Takeaway, Minnies Bar and Crottys Corner Bar.

Minor Football
Our minor footballer will get their County Championship Campaign underway on the weekend of February 7th / 8th away to Rathgormack.

Inter County Duty
On behalf of all in the club we would like to offer our heartiest congratulations to the Waterford Senior Football team on their wonderful victory over UCC in the McGrath Cup Final in Fraher Field. It was Waterford’s first time winning the Competition in over 30 years and Stephen Enright, Michael O’Halloran, Patrick Hurney and Mark Ferncombe all played their part in the victory. We wish them all the very best of luck ahead of their opening league game against Wicklow in Fraher Field this Saturday night.

We would ask all players to please make an effort to get their membership fees paid as soon as possible as any player who suffers an injury in training or matches is not covered by insurance unless they have paid their membership.

Booking of Fields
With a number of teams starting back training we would like to remind all team managers to please ensure that they book the field with Michael O’Donovan prior to training.

Club Bingo
Our Club Bingo will continue this Sunday night in the CBS Hall where the jackpot is €800.

All in the club would like to congratulate Neil Moore on his recent election as Vice Chairman of the Western Board.

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.
