Deise Development Draw and Club Development Fund
Tickets for the 2015 Deise Development Draw are currently on sale throughout the parish and we once again appeal to all our loyal supporters to please come on board and support the draw as not only do you have the opportunity to win some wonderful prizes but the draw is also a source of vital income for the club. Tickets can be obtained from any Committee member and we will be calling to the houses of the parish over the next number of weeks promoting the draw.
Also the club are continuing on with our Development Fund the Club 300 initiative. This was a wonderful success for the last 5 years and we hope that it will get the same great support this year. The money raised over the last 5 years enabled us to carry out all the Development work that has taken place in the field and we hope to be in a position to carry on with further development work in the not too distant future. In order to do this we require the support of the community and we appeal to all those of you who are position to join the 300 Club to do so and help us to provide the very best facilities for our Juvenile and Adult Players in the years to come.

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 €1,100.

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.
