Club Notes - 18th February

Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 40
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Alice O’Connor’s Bar where the jackpot is €4,550. On Sunday night last Brendan Mansfield was drawn out and chose card number 40 which wasn’t the Joker although he did win €50. Richie Cosgrave and Dylan Hogan 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.

Abbeyside Sports Awards
On Sunday night last there was very large crowd present in Minnies Bar for the by now Annual Abbeyside Sports Awards and it was great to see some club members honoured for their work in the community. Bernard Shields, Rogie Cashin, Gavin Breen and Stephen Enright were all honoured for their commitment and dedication to the club over a long number of years.

Under 21 Football
Our under 21 footballers get their Championship campaign underway this Sunday in Fraher Field when they take on St. Olivers at 2pm.

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 . Membership can be paid to Kevin Tobin or Pa Enright.

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 €950.

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.
