Juvenile Notes - 4th February

Outdoor Hurling
Due to the unavailability of the Friary College because of exams our outdoor hurling this year will start earlier than in previous years. Because of these exams we will not be able start back again indoors and so we will start our outdoor sessions in mid February or early March weather permitting. We would like to thank all of the people in the Friary with the co-operation in regards to this matter. Helmets etc will be available to buy at a discounted rate at these new sessions and all are welcome.

Just to let everyone know that membership for the current year is now due. Mentors for each group of players now have membership forms and there also available if needed from Niamh Enright. We ask all players that this membership is paid as soon as possible for insurance reasons.

Our under 8 hurling season gets under way on Saturday the 21st February next with a blitz organised for Buhadoon.

Medal Presentation
There was a great turnout in Ballinroad Hall on Thursday night last for our medal presentation. It was great to see so many youngsters collecting medals on the night for their playing achievements on the field in 2014. Our guest speaker on the night was Niamh Briggs and we thank her most sincerely for attending. Also to Tomás Kiely who was our MC on the night a big thank you must go to also. A special award was presented to outgoing treasurer of the juvenile section of the club Kevin Tobin for his outstanding work with the club throughout the years. Overall a very nice evening was had by all present and a thank you must go to anyone who put work into the night to make it the success it was.

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.
