Club Notes - 4th February

Jack The Joker
No. Drawn - 24
Our ever popular Jack the Joker fundraiser continues this Sunday night in Alice O’Connor’s Bar where the jackpot is €4,150. On Sunday night last Pat Walsh was drawn out and chose card number 24 which wasn’t the Joker although she did win €50. Neil Moore and Irene c/o Joe Riordan 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 footballers will get their County Championship campaign underway this Sunday morning when they take on Tramore in Abbeyside at 11:30 am.

Inter County Duty
Waterford footballers continued their excellent start to 2015 with a good win over Wicklow in Fraher Field on Saturday night last where 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 next league game against Offaly in Tullamore this Sunday.

On behalf of all in the club we would like to extend our hearties congratulations to Niamh Briggs on two notable achievements during the last week. Firstly during the week Niamh was named as captain of the Irish Ladies Rugby team which is a remarkable achievement by Niamh and a wonderful honour for all her family. Then to cap off the week, on Saturday night, she was named as The Park Hotel Supreme Sports Star for the second year in a row. On Thursday night Niamh was guest of honour at our underage medal presentation and it is fantastic that such an international sports star such as Niamh continues to help out our club whenever she can.

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 €850.

Table Quiz
This Friday night we are holding a fundraising table quiz in Minnies Bar at 9 pm. Teams of 4 cost €40 and as always it promises to be a most enjoyable night so we ask all our supporters to please come along on the night and show your support.

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.
