Juvenile Notes - 22nd April

Under 14 Feile Football
The under 14 players had a great win on Saturday against the Gaelteacht in the Feile Final with a final score line of 3-08 to 2-3. Conditions were tough in the first half as we played against a strong wind. We scored two early goals through our full forward Daniel Raher. Our full back line of Patrick Fitzgerald, Michael Troy and Sean Roche played well and dealt with the high ball well. Ring came back at us before half time and it was all level at the break. We began well in the second half with our half forward line of Oisin Hallahan, Darragh Slevin and Cian Riardon playing well, with a great goal by Cian.
We continued to defend well with half back line of Colin Foley, Alec Norris and particularly Eoin Aherne playing very well. Our goalkeeper played well and wasn't at fault for any of their goals. Our midfield partnership of Rory Ahearne and Senan Travers got really on top in the second half and played some great ball into the full forward line of David Shields, Daniel Raher and David Hayes This was a good team performance with Ben O’Donovan, Daniel Treen, Eoin Flynn and Jamie Moylan also impressing, and also Tony Dwyer, Calum Beresford, Cathal Cosgrove were part of the squad. The lads now have a wonderful weekend away to look forward to in late June, something they will remember for the rest of their lives. We wish a speedy recovery to Michael Kiely, Niall Buckley and DJ Kiely who are presently on the injured list.

County Féile Football Champions, 2015

Minor Football
On Friday night last we took on county champions the Nire and after playing well in this game we came away with victory. Well done to all.

Under 8
The under 8s travelled to Carriganore on Saturday morning last to take part in a blitz. We had two teams involved and both teams played three games each. All the training at home and in the field is paying off as some great hurling was played by all. A big thank you must go to all the parents who provided transport on the day. It is back to the field this Saturday morning at half past ten for training and of course new members are always welcome.

It is situated within the Parish of Abbeyside, Ballinroad and Garranbane.

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.

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.
