Under 13 and 14
We kicked off the season for the under14 football team on Sunday morning the 8th March with a good display against Ring. We played some good open football and ended up deserving winners. Our next game in this competition is against Clashmore. We all wish DJ Kiely a speedy recovery as he broke his wrist during this game.
Meanwhile our under13 football side played their first game of the championship over the weekend going down in a close match to a stronger Nire team.

Under 16
Our under16 football team played their second game of the county championship on Sunday morning last against St. Pat’s. On the day our team never really got going and lost out to a stronger more determined St. Pat’s side on the day.

Minor Football
This Sunday morning we play Gaultier in Gaultier at 11am in the County Championship.

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.
