Club Notes - 7th January

Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 3
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Alice O’Connor’s Bar where the jackpot is €3,500. On Sunday night last Paddy Power Staff were drawn out and chose card number 3 which wasn’t the Joker although they did win €50. Rita Power and Jimmy Meehan 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.

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.

Inter County Duty
On Sunday last the Waterford Senior Footballers got their 2015 season off to a winning start with victory over University of Limerick in the McGrath Cup. Stephen Enright, Michael O’Halloran and Patrick Hurney were all on the team and we wish them the best of luck against CIT this Sunday in Clashmore.

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 €650.

On behalf of all in the club we would like to extend our sympathies to Mrs. Bridget Riordan McCarthy Ville and all the Riordan family on the death of Bridget’s mother Mrs. Sheila Curtain, Currow, Co.Kerry over the Christmas period. The Riordan family give fantastic support to our club in many ways off the field whilst on the field Mrs. Curtain’s grandsons are valued members of our Juvenile Section.

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.
