Juvenile Notes - 1st April

A big thank you must go to everyone who donated clothes etc for our recycling drive. It was a great success and this comes down to everyone who contributed items on the day.

Under 10s
The U10's played their next game in the Western Football League on Friday night last week (20th March) at the club grounds. Tallow were the visitors to Abbeyside. Following good displays already, the boys backed it up with their best performance to date with scores coming from all over the pitch. The match was played under the lights and all the boys were delighted with the opportunity to play a game with the floodlights on.
The squad then finished a busy March on Saturday last (28th) with a trip to Carriganore to participate in an U10 Football Blitz which featured teams from the West and the East. On a lovely but windy morning we arrived with two teams for an 11am start. The boys in group one played Na Gaeil (Dunhill/Fenor) An Ghaeltacht and Rathgormack and the boys in group two came up against St Pats, Kilmacthomas and John Mitchels. After 3 games each and 60 minutes of football played the lads won 5 of the 6 matches (not that we were keeping the scores, isn't that right boys). A good morning was had by all and thanks to the parents who travelled. We still have 3 games to play in the Western Football League and these games will be arranged and played over the next couple of weeks.
Panel on the Day: Darragh Walsh, Jamie Mulcahy, Jake Fitzgerald Drummy, Ethan Keohan, Conor Gough, Billy O Connell, Sean Queally, Jack O Donovan, Sean Walsh, Darragh Cosgrave, Kieran Cosgrave, Jake O Donnell, Cathal Sweeney, Daniel Morrisey, Brian Callaghan, Kyle Moloney, Tommy Flynn, Sean Prunty, Cal Tutty, Rhodi Morrisey.
Training continues every Friday evening from 6 till 7 and with the clocks gone forward we will now be back on the pitch.

Under 13 / 14
We had a good win over Dungarvan last Saturday in the Under13 Football championship. Our next outing is Thursday week against Kilrossanty. Training continues every week. Our next outing is Under 14 v Dungarvan next Saturday.

Under 16
Our under 16 footballers played their latest round of their championship on Sunday morning last and after a very competitive game came away with victory.

Our under 9 team will train between the time of 11.30 and 12.30 at our wall ball. All are welcome to attend and it would be great to see some new faces.

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.
