Juvenile Notes - 29th April

Under 10
After several weeks of football we went back to hurling. On Thursday night (23rd) Lismore came to Abbeyside for a challenge match. On a lovely evening our lads showed some rustiness but battled away against a good Lismore team. We look forward to the return match when we'll have a lot more hurling done. Then on Saturday just gone (25th) we travelled to Carriganore for a hurling blitz. We played 3 games, the first against De La Salle, where the boys came out on top. Up next was Clonea, although we lost this one the boys were quick to point out that we actually won (unfortunately Clonea were short three and fair play, 3 of our boys agreed to play with them) Last up was Ballygunner and this ended in a draw. The game with Lismore definitely stood to us going to Carriganore. A good morning's hurling was had by all and thanks to the parents who travelled. Training continues every Friday evening and we'll look to step it up a bit as we prepare for the annual U10 Ballyduff Tournament at the end of May. Panel for both days was: Ethan, Cormac, Jake O, Jake F, Sean W, Sean Q, Jack, Sam, Darragh W, Darragh C, Kieran, Jamie, Conor, Brian, Fionn, Cathal, Daniel and Billy.

Minor Football
Our minor football team play the last round of their league fixtures tonight (Wednesday) at home against Dungarvan. It would be great to see a large turnout out shouting on this fine team.

Under 13
We lost out by a point to The Nire in the Under 13 Football Championship on Tuesday night of last week at the Millfield. All the boys played very well on the night and were unlucky in defeat.

Outdoor Hurling
Our outdoor hurling sessions continue again on Saturday morning the 2nd May at our club grounds. These sessions will include under 6, 7 and 8s and will run from 10.30 to 11.30. 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. Helmets will be available to buy at a discounted rate at these sessions.

Under 10, 11 and 12
The under 10 team will train between the time of 6 and 7 on a Friday evening at the wall ball and the under 11 team between 7 and 8 on a Friday night. Our under 12 team will train between 7 and 8 on a Wednesday night again at the wall ball. Again all are welcome to attend.

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.
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.
