This week's photo shows the Abbeyside Minor Hurling Panel that completed a Western and County Double in 2003 on a visit to Scoil Mhuire where many would have first learned the skills of the game. Victories over Dungarvan Gaels and St. Patrick's set up a Western Final against Lismore. The County Final against De La Salle, played at Walsh Park in October, was a tight affair with the boys coming out on top by five points, 2-10 to 0-11. This win secured a first County Minor Hurling Title in 27 years.
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.
